Description

The cathedral of Saint-Stephen has four statues on the buttresses of the south transept, these statues are placed under a baldachin. Since these baldachins are supported by columns, the statues are difficult to see.

The north and south portal of the cathedral of Saint-Stephen are adorned with sculptures, but that of the north portal is heavily damaged.

South Portal

The tympan has three tiers with various scenes and in the archivolts are eightteen small statues.
