Le Puy Cathedral: Bell Tower: Roman Temple Survivals

Bell Tower: Roman Temple Survivals

Inside the bell tower is a large porch, which includes the 6th-century wall of the cathedral's north aisle. Built into the wall are fragments from the Roman temple: reliefs of cupids disarming Hercules, scenes of family and market life, and a memorial inscription.
