Sainte Chapelle (5/21)

Be dazzled by the 1,113 stained glass windows at this jewel of the Rayonnant Gothic period.

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.
