    A small chapel built to house relics. The gothic jewel houses 15 15-meter lead-glass windows from the 13th century. You are immersed in color. The walls and ceilings are carefully painted. A space that you do not want to leave. A must see, I think.

    Admission 10 euros. Security checks. Absolutely no access with helmet - also no bicycle helmets.

    Palace chapels of this type were built in the later Middle Ages on other residences of the French royal family and its secondary lines in the duchies. They are also referred to as Saintes-Chapelles only if they were equipped with Passion relics and followed a specific liturgy. These include the chapels of Vincennes, Riom, Châteaudun, Aigueperse, Champigny-sur-Veude and Vic-le-Comte. Gone are the Saintes-Chapelles of Gué-de-Maulny, Vivier -en-Brie, Bourbon-l'Archambault and Bourges. [6] [7] A very similar chapel is in the castle Saint-Germain-en-Laye (Yvelines). The Palace Chapel in Versailles is considered a Baroque variation of the Sainte-Chapelle. As successor buildings of the Sainte-Chapelle outside of France, the Gothic palace chapels of Aachen and Prague.

    From the inventory of the Sainte-Chapelle comes the Gospel of Sainte-Chapelle, one of the most important manuscripts of Ottonian book illumination. The magnificent manuscript made by the master of the gospel reached the Bibliothèque nationale de France after the revolution (signature Lat. 8851).

    A gem of Gothic style. Built in seven years, an impressive feat, the Sainte Chapelle was intended to house precious Christian relics, including Christ's crown of thorns, acquired by Saint Louis. Religious and political influence. Having these sacred relics in his possession made the already powerful monarch head of western Christianity.Stunning stained glass. Arranged across 15 windows, each 15 metres high, the stained glass panes depict 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments recounting the history of the world until the arrival of the relics in Paris.Continue your visit to the Conciergerie, a unique historical site alongside the Sainte-Chapelle in the Palais de la Cité, once a revolutionary tribunal and prison where Marie-Antoinette was
