    Visit of the Sainte-Chapelle

    The Sainte-Chapelle was built in the XIIIth century, by order of king Saint Louis, in the heart of the Palace of La Cité, near Notre-Dame, to shelter the crown of thorns of Christ.

    Sainte Chapelle

    Its huge stained-glass windows which let light and colors flood into the nave make of it one wonder of Gothic style.

    The technical exploit of its construction is as fascinating as the religious and political message that Saint Louis wanted to leave in its walls.
