La Sainte-Chapelle
The Lower Chapel, 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 Île de la Cité 
was built by Louis IX for use as his royal chapel.  
The lower chapel seen here served as parish church 
for all the inhabitants of the king's palace.
