In 1499, Martin Chambiges led the elevation of the transept, which was continued by his son Pierre. The building then measures 72m by 58m, with an impressive vault height of 47m at the level of the choir. After a further collapse in 1573, the whole thing was repaired and completed: the nave was never built in its entirety.
