This view through a circular window in the back of the choir gives us a peek at Italian renaissance ceilings decorated with cherubim. The profusion of light in the 16th-century part of the cathedral contrasts with the relative penumbra of the old mosque, which lost much of its light when the archways were bricked up centuries ago.
