Sainte-Chapelle

Located on the historic Île de la Cité in Paris, Sainte-Chapelle is one of the most elegant examples of Gothic architecture. Constructed in 1248 by King Louis IX, this chapel was designed to house France's sacred Christian relics. Sainte-Chapelle enchants visitors with its incredible stained glass windows and towering Gothic architecture.


Sainte-Chapelle consists of two parts: the lower chapel and the upper chapel. The lower chapel was built to serve the palace staff, while the upper chapel, used for worship by the royal family and nobility, is a dazzling work of art. The walls of the upper chapel are largely covered with colorful stained glass windows, reaching a height of 15 meters. These windows depict scenes from the Bible and significant moments throughout sacred history.


Sainte-Chapelle is considered one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture and medieval stained glass art. This historic structure offers visitors a window into the art and faith world of medieval Europe. Today, with its religious significance and aesthetic beauty, Sainte-Chapelle is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Paris, welcoming thousands of art lovers and history enthusiasts each year. This impressive chapel adds elegance and depth to the city's skyline as a part of Paris's rich cultural heritage.
