The stained glass of Sainte-Chapelle : Paris, FR
One of the sites I missed during my first trip to Paris, but which Janeen and I were determined to see this trip, was Sainte-Chapelle (Eng.: The Holy Chapel). This beautiful chapel was built on the grounds of the royal palace (today the Palace of Justice) and was the private church of the kings of France. It was originally built to house relics purportedly from the life Christ that were brought to Paris during the reign of Louis IX (later Saint Louis). This beautiful little Gothic church has some of the most beautiful stained glass in all of Paris. To see more pictures, visit my Picasa Web Album.
