The floor of the cathedral has a Latin cross with apses in the heads and in the octagonal transept a dome with a lantern rises, with the special feature that there are eight pillars that form this space and on which support the arches that receive the weight of the dome, according to Bramante’s model and represented in the model that is preserved from the 15th century, whose dimensions are 5 m in length and 3 m in height. In this article the study of the octagonal transept, where its majestic dome and the traces of the square, on which all the geometry of the building derives.
