|Passion mural fragment|
As we have seen with other early murals, background landscapes include local topographical features, while the friezes include a veritable compendium of local flora and fruits.
|St Francis and St Anthony of Padua|
|St. Bonaventure and St. Louis, Bishop of Toulouse?|
The significance of these architectural frescoes is unclear although they are of a later date than the other murals and may have served as backdrops to statuary.
A third corner fresco shows a rose colored Jerusalem style cross against a blue landscape, framed by decorative panels of similar crosses—a motif which is also emblazoned along the exterior parapets of the church.
