That’s a good over-view of the complex, it shows the additions to the standard crucuform church, the tower/spire, the additional trancept/chapel facing the square, the peristyle arcade around the west end and the baroque flights of steps, each era adding it’s own layer, wonderful stuff.

Can’t find anything further on the 12th century door, other than the figures are Christ, ‘as judge over the worlds’, flanked by the two patrons of the church, the apostle Peter and the pope/martyr Alexander, not sure which is which.
