la sainte chapelle paris france


The Sainte-Chapelle, (Holy Chapel), is a royal chapel in the Gothic style within the medieval Palais de la Cité, the residence of the Kings of France until the 14th century, on the Île de la Cité in the heart of Paris, France. Begun some time after 1238 and consecrated on 26 April 1248, the Sainte-Chapelle is considered among the highest achievements of the Rayonnant period of Gothic architecture. It was commissioned by King Louis IX of France to house his collection of Passion relics, including Christ’s Crown of Thorns— one of the most important relics in medieval Christendom. Along with the Conciergerie, the Sainte-Chapelle is one of the earliest surviving buildings of the Capetian royal palace on the Île de la Cité. Although damaged during the French Revolution, and restored in the 19th century, it has one of the most extensive 13th-century stained glass collection anywhere in the world…” Source: Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sainte-Chapelle )

  1. une  merveille cette chapelle je suis allée écouter les quatre-saisons de Vivaldi géant !!!!!

  2. Has this chapel been extensively restored? It seems to me unlikely that it survived the violent upheavals in the history of Paris without suffering extensive damage. Those rabid anti-royalists were white-hot angry bastards intent on major destruction.

  3. awesome and mesmerizing colour and light in this beautiful cathedral Sorin! beautiful video! I had a little chuckle when you did the slow tilt down on the cathedral door, your wife thought it was safe and poked her head around the corner, saw you and disappeared again. I think she's developed an allergy to your camera. Still it's always nice to see her there :o)

  4. It is time to bring some French air in our lives! This playlist makes me feel happy! Thanks for sharing dear Sorin! Can't wait to see the next one!
