Benefits of Visiting Sainte-Chapelle’s Renowned Stained Glass

Saint-Chapelle, located in the heart of Paris, features 1,113 stained glass windows that showcase the unique Rayonnant Gothic period. Arranged throughout 15 windows that are each about 50 feet in height, the stained glass original to this church depicts 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments. These historical pieces each have a stunning, intricate design with bold colors. In addition to these tall arching stained glass windows is a spectacular kaleidoscope of vibrant stained glass featured within the main sanctuary. It is truly overwhelming standing inside this impressive work of art. With the majority of the structure encased with stained glass, it almost makes you wonder just how it’s capable of being structurally sound.

Sainte-Chapelle has become one of the largest tourist attractions in France, especially for stained glass enthusiasts. Their one-of-a-kind stained glass collection has even made it possible for them to charge for tickets for visitors to explore their stained glass.
