Sainte-Chapelle Holy Relics of the Passion of the Christ


Sainte-Chapelle is a jewel of high gothic architecture, offering a luminous ethereal beauty that you cannot experience in other places in the world.

Located in the Palais de la Cité, the residence for royals from the 10th to the 14th centuries. Built in seven years  and opened from 1248 under order of King Louis IX. Sainte-Chapelle was constructed as a royal chapel to house the Holy Relics of the Passion of the Christ.

Relics of Crown of Thorns and fragment of the Holy Cross made this place special.

Sainte-Chapelle was damaged during the French Revolution in the late 18th century. Much of the Sainte-Chapelle was reconstructed, but a majority of the delicate stained glass are original.
