A jewel of radiant gothic. Built in 7 years, a record time, the Sainte-Chapelle is intended to house the most precious relics of Christianity, including the crown of thorns of Christ, acquired by Saint Louis.
A religious and political significance. The possession of these holy relics designates the very powerful monarch as the head of Western Christianity.
Exceptional glass windows. The stained-glass windows of the 1113 scenes of the Old and New Testaments are divided into 15 stained-glass windows, 15m high, telling the history of the world until the arrival of the relics in Paris.
