half arch?
Explanation:
Hi Ailish! Don't normally take on Catalan but this was architecture: Are you referring to the kind of half-arch butress structure that seems to support the central vault? (Actually half of an "arco en media naranja"). Pictures:

Really Parrot, I couldn't tell you! I was told it was a tourism text, then spent about 12 hours on 2000 words, cos of the amount of architectural terms that came up...oh well!
I think I found somrthing eventually in a parallel text.
