Speyer Cathedral - Side Nave South
Side Nave South

The southern side nave has been the main entrance for a while, when the front was closed for renovations. The entrance to the crypt is here as well. On the ceiling you can see the cross vaults which hint already into gothic stile.

This part of the dome has also been used quite mundane as winter garden for the summer plants of the town, like oleander and palms.
