La Sainte Chapelle

Sainte-Chappele, on the Ile de la Cite in the heart of Paris, opened its doors on April 26, 1248. It was built by Louis IX to serve as his personal royal chapel. It is, in the words, of another, "a masterpiece of Flamboyant Gothic architecture..." The stained-glass windows are considered to be the finest in all of Europe.

From the Notre Dame Towers #1

Note to followers of this blog: I have found some additional photos of Paris, which I shall be posting in the days ahead. We hope you enjoy them. This photo, and others you will see in this series, were taken by Lois Anne who had the fortitude to climb the towers with a sprained ankle!
