The choir is the area that provides seating for the clergy and church choir. From the outside, it corresponds to the apse of Notre-Dame Cathedral, oriented to face east, towards Jerusalem. 

The choir is made up of four rectilinear bays closed by a semicircular apse with five sides. It is the same height and has the same double ambulatory element as the nave.
