The Lower Chapel
Sainte-Chappelle, 1242


The windows of the upper chapel are stunning but no more so than the vibrant bold colors of the lower chapel with accents of gold.  This magnificent 13th century Gothic chapel on the Île de la Cité was built by Louis IX for use as his royal chapel.  This lower chapel served as parish church for all the inabitants of the king's palace.
