Sainte Chapelle

12 June 2018 ,

 

Built in only 7 years in order to shelter the Christian relics, the Sainte Chapelle is constituted by 1113 stained-glass windows representing scenes of the Old and the New Testament, distributed in 15 windows of 15m of height. The acquisition of the relics sheltered within the Sainte Chapelle, allowed the already powerful French monarchy to raise itself at the head of the western Christianity and to amplify its powers and its influence.
