This wonderful photograph by Daniel Boulet shows the vertical orginization of the cathedral.  The bottom level is called the arcade and is formed by the nave piers which separate the nave from the aisles running to either side of it.  The second level is called the triforium and usually consists of a row of triple arches (it is also called the gallery).
