☆ Sainte-Chapelle ☆

Sainte-Chapelle

Next to the Palais de Justice (law courts), Sainte-Chapelle and the Conciergerie are the precious remains of what was once the palace of the kings of France from the 10th to the 14th century..

The Sainte-Chapelle, a triumphantly flamboyant example of the Gothic style, was commissioned by Saint Louis..

In the lower chapel, dedicated to the Virgin, gilded lilies on an azure-blue starstudded vault are a wonderful sight..

But reserve your praise for the upper chapel, designed to house the relics of Christ’s Passion, dispersed during the French Revolution, and lined with predominantly red and blue stained-glass windows – the largest expanse of 13th century stained glass in the world..

    Oi, vim agradecer sua visita ao Matutando. E uau! Chego aqui justamente quando você publica um post sobre a Sainte-Chapelle, uma das mais belas igrejas que eu visitei. Fantástico!

    I am sad I did not get to visit St. Chapelle during my visit. I tried a couple of times but never went at the right time and it was closed. Thank you so much for these photos. It really shows how spectacular I had always heard it was. I will definitely go back!
