Collège des Bernardins - Gothic Architecture - Crypt - Stone Vaults - Cistercian Monastery (Paris)

The style of the vaults of the cellar (seen in this photo) seems Romanesque but the architecture of this medieval building is Gothic.­

Stan Parry wrote: 1248 is over 100 years after the birth of Gothic at Saint-Denis and Sens.­ The crypt is heavy in order to support the building, but the ribbed vaults, if they are original, a are probably much later.­ The round columns are deceptive, in that they were used in Romanesque architecture, but it looks like the side arches are pointed.­ The upper part is clearly Cistercian Gothic.­

The cellar now holds auditoriums and conference rooms.­
