Encircling the entire interior of Saint Cecilia Cathedral are ambulatories or side aisles.
The vaults of the side aisle ceilings are stained in one of the rich blues so often seen in the cathedrals and basilicas of Europe. Gold designs fill the ceiling. Within the ambulatories, or walkways, are stained glass windows, paintings, and shrines which invite one to stop for prayer or reflection. Entries to chapels open from these aisles.
