In line with the central nave, beyond the altar, there is the area attributed to the choir, which is composed of a rectangular span surmounted by a cross vault and ends with a circular apse.
The large choir concludes the presbytery space reserved for priests and includes the monumental altar. Along the walls there are forty wooden stalls, made by Cristoforo and Lorenzo Canozi called "da Lendinara".

The Episcopal Chair in red Verona marble is the oldest element of the complex: it is a seat of the medieval age whose armrests are embellished by bas-reliefs depicting the stories of St. George killing the dragon and the conversion of St. Paul. The work is inserted inside a baroque wooden baldachin, supported by twisted columns.
In the apsidal basin there is the fresco by Gerolamo Mazzola Bedoli, at the center of which is represented the Christ who, showing the signs of his sacrifice, ascends to heaven between a riot of angels and saints, with the whole scene dominated by a intense light of heaven.
