Even without all the original elaborate decoration, the vaulted space is impressive and serves its purpose creating a place of peace and spiritual contemplation.
Behind the church near the apse end, a small courtyard lined with a few small shops, restaurants and bars provides a shady place to sit and enjoy a quiet drink or snack. If you look carefully, you can find a bronze relief of a hand caressing a breast that was set in the cobblestone at night by an anonymous artist. In the center of the courtyard is a bronze statue named Belle honoring the prostitutes of the world. It was installed in 2007.
