Story about this
Sainte-Chapelle is a Gothic architecture jewel with beautiful stained glass windows and is considered one of the most fascinating architectural works of the Western world. It is an architectural and aesthetic marvel of its day and at one time the most important and holy place in the whole world.
Built during the second half of the 13th century by Louis IX, Saint Chapelle is a place of extraordinary religious symbolism. The building itself is a giant reliquary, built both to house the great relics of the king, including Christ’s crown of thorns and a piece of the true cross, and to prove worthy of owning these relics. At its heart rests a magnificent gold and silver shrine.
