I have been to friends in Paris. Everyone should not miss the famous Notre Dame de Paris. In fact, on the island of Xitun, about 500 meters away from Notre Dame, there is also a very low-key, little-known Saint Chapel. It used to be the royal chapel of the French royal family. The church has a small footprint but is extremely luxurious. There is no pillar in the middle of the long and narrow hall. The dozen or so tall colored windows around it occupy most of the wall. Each window depicts the story related to the Bible. . Standing in the empty hall, looking up and looking around, as if surrounded by the light of various colors, it is amazing!
Paris Saint Chapel, which was built by King Louis IX of France to preserve the sacred crowns and crucifixions of Jesus' crucifixion. The cost of the entire church is far less than the price of the sacred objects. The Saint Chapel is small in size, but the carved glass on the top tells the story of more than 1,000 Bibles. Each painting is an artistic treasure, which is really shocking.
La Sainte-Chapelle is a chapel on the Ile de la Cite in Paris, France. It is wildly considered one of the foremost examples of Gothic architecture in the world. The chapel was completed in 1248 and stood untouched until the French Revolution, when it was unceremoniously destroyed. It was originally built to house Kind Louis IX’s collection of relics, including what he believed to be Christ’s crown of thorns. Sainte-Chapelle is home to what many consider to be the world’s most beautiful and intricate stained glass, though much is re-creation based on original documents.
