Sainte-Chapelle - Dainty and Pretty

One of the prettiest churches I have ever seen.

There are 15 stained-glass windows that are separated by narrow columns that soar up to the ceiling which is studded by golden stars against a blue background.

There is a lower chapel was was originally the place for servants and commoners to worship – now mostly taken over by the gift shop.

This church is indeed one of the ‘must sees’ on the Ile de la Cité. It is a beautiful church. After our visit we walked around to the Conciergerie which has more brutal past.
