Sainte-Chapelle


It was quiet Sunday morning in Sainte-Chapelle. The beautiful Gothic style chapel right in the middle of the island on Seine river (Île de la Cité) opened its door for the numerous visitors to enjoy the beauty and spiritual atmosphere of this holy place. The light inside was not so bright and colorful because of the cloudy day. However huge stained windows and rosettes created miracle feeling.

  3. The thought of being able to construct such grand architecture at the time this place was built is just staggering.

    • This is a mystery of all of ancient structures! How was that possible?!

    • Actually, both of them are beautiful in different way. However Sainte-Capelle is full of light and looks lighter and more elegant.

      • I’ve seen it on sunny and cloudy days. It is even more beautiful on a sunny day.
