Sainte-Chapelle
Palatine chapel


Certainly the magnificent jewel-toned stained glass windows are eye-catching, 
but every inch of the wall surface and the vault is intricately colored and decorated.


Fragments of the original paint would indicate that the colors of the 19th century restoration pale by comparison.  The 13th century designers selected colors that were closer to the vivid hues of the stained glass windows.


Stunning!
