My last travel with my trusty (and now long outdated) Minolta A-1. We were on Jerba Island, Tunisia, and visiting the El Grib Synagogue, the principal of seven synagogues on the Island, where the Jews there talk about arriving on Jerba after the fall of Solomon's Temple, 2600 years ago. They have lived in friendship with their Arab neighbors for a very, very long time. The tilework is most likely Islamic and local to Tunisia.

Quite a strong image. Just a bit bright in the middle. Possibly try burning in a little.

Such interesting architectural features, Peter.
It's a shame about the glare from the windows on the left. Although you needed that light, and it creates atmosphere, it does cause photographic problems. A lot of people who shoot church interiors take several images with different exposures and amalgamate them. HDR is a common choice. So you can expose for the walls to keep them from being too dark, and expose for the bright window light.
If you don't want to make things so complicated, you could avoid those bright windows, and I'd suggest a vertical format to shoot the right side only, which would include more of the attractive arches at the bottom. You'd still have the beam of light, but it isn't necessary to show where it is coming from.
Pamela.
