The Halls Of Sainte-Chapelle – Paris Landmark
Sainte-Chapelle, or the Holy Chapel, is one of Paris’s most beautiful and treasured landmarks.
Modern marvels of engineering are truly something to behold. But they don’t seem to hold a candle to historic marvels. While our capabilities have grown exponentially over the past centuries, there is something awe-inspiring about seeing monumental feats performed in the absence of our new capabilities. Sainte-Chapelle, or the Holy Chapel, is a prime example. Sainte-Chapelle is in the absolute heart of Paris, on the Île de la Cité, and couldn’t be more deserving of its central location. These beautiful stained glass halls were commissioned by Louis IX in 1242. His goal was to create a place beautiful enough to be worthy of housing his holy relics. Furthermore, he hoped it would show him as a worthy successor to Charlemagne as Holy Roman Emperor. They are, beyond doubt, one of the most beautiful examples of stained glass on Earth.
