The three chapels were originally separated by walls, each having a quadripartite groin vault. This is now only the case for the S chapel. The wall between the two chapels to the N has been removed, and replaced by a pair of pilasters carrying a transverse arch on imposts which copy the form of the original work. The first and second chapels are now the Old Library.
