Overview
Marvel at the more than 1,000 stained glass windows in this jewel of the Rayonnant Gothic period on a self-guided tour. Built in just 7 years, the Sainte Chapelle was intended to house significant Christian relics, including Christ's Crown of Thorns.
What to Expect
The Sainte Chapelle, located on the on the Île de la Cité in the heart of Paris, is a gem of Gothic style. Along with the Conciergerie, it is one of the earliest surviving buildings of the Capetian Royal Palace.

Spend an hour admiring the spectacular stained-glass windows that contribute to make Sainte Chapelle the jewel of the French Gothic. Arranged across 15 windows, each 15-meters high, the stained glass panes depict 1,113 scenes from the Old Testament and New Testament, recounting the history of the world up to the arrival of the relics in Paris.

The Holy Chapel story is deeply linked to sacred relics and items such as the Crown of Thorns or the Image of Edessa that were kept there. Having these sacred relics in his possession made the already powerful monarch the head of western Christianity and allowed him to gain power and influence.

This self-guided tour makes it possible for you to admire this unique monument and learn it's fascinating history.
