Antique stained glass windows
The church of the Exaltation-de-la-Sainte-Croix (Exaltation of the Holy Cross) in Bailly-le-Franc (Aube) is built according to the principle of stepped roofs and traditional local half-timbered houses and cob made of clay and oat straw. The nave is lit by a row of narrow bays framed by the cross of St Andrew.

Outside, a large Roman tile roof – once common in the Champagne region – covers the side aisles that enclose the nave and the west porch.
