Miracle of Light
This Gothic masterpiece built in 1246 is an incredible feat of construction. The upper chapel seen here surrounds the visitor with soaring stained glass windows of deep, vibrant primary colors. The ceiling design and structure is unique and recognized the world over.
The architectural prowess of the 13th century rivals any construction we might see today. Sainte-Chapelle is essentially a building of glass supported only by the narrow rib-like cages that press the entire weight of the roof through a system of arches on to a few columns - amazing!
