The Sainte-Chapelle was built in the thirteenth century
by order of Saint-Louis to contain what he believed to be the Crown of Thorns from
Christ's crucifixion and fragments of the True Cross. The high chapel with its 600 sq.
metres of windows, 2/3 of which are authentic, offer one of the most complete sets of
stained glass window from this era. The stained class windows actually help support the
structure of the church. This building is hidden from the street. Look at the top picture
and the one above and you can see it on the left behind the gates. If you cannot find it,
make sure you ask.
