Maître-autel (main altar)

The most important altar in a church.
The main altar is located in the chœur (choir) and is used by the priest for a variety of services (wedding, Eucharist, etc.).
The various chapelles (chapels) in a church have autels secondaires (secundary altars).
The picture shows the main altar in the Sacré-Cœur in Paray-le-Monial.
