Rendez-vous at the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris Sainte-Chapelle 75001 Paris fr

A sumptuous, intimate chapel with remarkable stained glass windows

The Sainte-Chapelle in Paris is the finest royal chapel to be built in France and features a truly exceptional collection of stained-glass windows. It was built in the mid 13th century by Louis IX, at the heart of the royal residence, the Palais de la Cité.

It was built to house the relics of the Passion of Christ. Adorned with a unique collection of fifteen glass panels and a large rose window forming a veritable wall of light, the Sainte-Chapelle is a gem of French Gothic architecture.

The Sainte-Chapelle was designated world heritage site by UNESCO.
