Sainte Chapell (Paris), France

The Sainte Chapelle is a royal holy chapel in the Gothic Rayonnant style located in the heart of Paris on theÎle de laCité, within the medieval Palais de la Cité, which was the residence of the Kings of France until the 14th century. Today, the chapel is a popular venue for classical music events featuring the works of giants like Vivaldi, Bach, and Mozart. Sainte Chapelle concert tickets for evening shows can be booked online.  

History of Sainte Chapelle

It is one of the oldest surviving Chappell, which was built to store relics of King Louis IX including the Crown of thorns of the Christ. The construction of the Chapel began somewhere during 1238 and the Chappell was consecrated in 1248 on the 26thof April. Until the completion of the Chapel, the relics were stores at the Château de Vincennes Chapel. Also a Chapel was specially built at the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye to store the relics. The fragments of the True Cross and the Holy Lance joined other relics of the Louis collection in 1246.

Rayonnant Gothic Architecture of Sainte Chapelle

Sainte Chapelle boasts of the rich ancient Rayonnant architecture, one of the gems of the French culture. Below is the elaborated description of the exterior, interior and the stained glass section of the Chapel.

The Exterior of Sainte Chapelle

To the right of the exterior of the Royal Palace is the Grand Degres, which is a grand ceremonial staircase, there is an eastern apse and a north flank to their left. Some of flamboyant representations from the Rayonnant architecture are showcased on the exterior of the Sainte Chappelle. These include those deep buttresses, which are surmounted by pinnacles, vast windows that are divided by a bar tracery and crocketted gables placed around the roof. The internal division into upper and lower chapels is clearly marked on the outside by a string-course, the lower walls pierced by smaller windows with a distinctive spherical triangle shape. Despite its decoration, the exterior is relatively simple and austere, devoid of flying buttresses or major sculpture and giving little hint of the richness within.

The Rich Interiors of Sainte Chapelle

The interior of the Sainte Chapelle is a Parisian Chapel, which was made to store relics and is a huge relic in itself. While the stained glasses dominate the interior section, there is a dadi arcade having Quatrefoils, which represent the scenes of martyrs and saints. Each and every part of remaining wall is painted though it doesn’t match the brightness of the original. While there are rich textiles hanging at the ceiling, there are 12 Apostoles, mounted on the clustered shafts above the dado level. These are stoned structures out of which 6 are replicas. Each of the Apostole has a disk having imprint of consecration crosses. There are private oratories of the king and his mother on the North and South side niches.

Stained Glass Windows of Sainte Chapelle

One of the most attractive features of the Sainte Chapelle is its stained glass windows. There are fifteen beautiful and huge windows from the mid-13th-century, which fill the nave and apse. But, there is a large rose window that was included in the upper chapel c.1490; stands out on the western owing to its flamboyant tracery.

Sainte Chapell Events

The windows narrate a series of events from holy catholic books in an iconographic manner. The three windows on the eastern apse explain the New Testament, visual display of the important scenes from the life of John the Evangelist (right), scenes, of the Passion (center) and the Infancy of Christ (left). But, the windows on the nave, examples of royal kings and queens from the Old Testament.

While the cycle of events begins with the depiction of events from the Book of Genesis commence from the western bay of the north wall, it is ended with the instances from the Book of Kings in a clockwise manner.

The final most window depicts the latest scenes of kingship from rediscovery of Relics of Christ to their return to Paris and miracles performed and the then return to King Louis.

      Hello Team Memorable, I visited to Europe trip organised by Memorable trip majorly Krishna, It was fully customized. trip was of 11 days in which I covered Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice), Swiss (Zurich, Interlaken, Geneva, Lucerne) & France (Paris). Trip was good with little ups and downs. Thank you so much for organizing the trip and being always available for the query during trip. I really like the availability for the staff to clarify me the things whenever needed. ​ Only thing which I did not liked was of Paris hotel. Location was good but somehow room quality was not satisfactory. In future, I will surely go with Memorable, I also recommend same to try this once. Big Kudos to team Memorable.!!

    • Trip to Europe

      We had booked my honeymoon trip to France and Italy through Hub Holidays. Despite being a package tour, we had the complete independence to chose my itinerary. The hotels provided were just awesome, especially the ones is Venice and Rome. Our hotel location in Nice and Paris was also awesome. The hotel staff in Rome was so courteous that they upgraded us for a complete apartment with full amenities. To my amazement, it also had a terrace with it. Speaking about Hub Holidays, I have never had a better travel agency doing job for me. They were quick and generous while responding to any queries or problems. Keep up the good work guys. Also, I dropped my passport in Disneyland Paris and Hub Holidays helped me in getting it back and made me feel relaxed even though I thought I have lost it. Yeeshu and Prashant were too good.

      I don't know how should I start but from the planning of the trip to the come back to India you guys(especially Yeeshu@Hubholiday.com and Prashant@hubholiday.com) helped us a lot. We faced visa issue from the France embassy as they held the wife's passport for an unknown reason that made us worried about the trip but with the support of your visa assistance team we got that in time. The trip was very well planned. We explored the Paris(the whole city With Hop On Hop Off, visited Eiffel Tower (Amazing experience), Disneyland), Lucern, Bern(as we got the spare day that we utilized), Zurich in and had a very great and memorable trip. A big Thanks to Yeeshu, Prashant and your team for providing the excellent arrangement and support throughout the trip. I would love to have another trip with HubHoliday in future.

      I went to France, Switzerland and Italy. I got a very competitive pricing from Hubholiday. They provided very nice pre, post and on trip support. Thanks Yeeshu and Prashant for your efforts to make my trip memorable. They even provided support for information not part of package such as best option to buy sim. I really liked hop in hop off bus in France and Italy, it was a great way to visit major tourist places in less time in a cost effective manner. Swiss pass in Switzerland was also great I could travel anywhere in Switzerland via it. Tip for first time travelers - make sure you know all information in detail, less vegetarian options are there specially in Switzerland so you can buy fruits, chips, etc from there or bring from India, be well before time on famous monuments, make sure to take care of your stuff to avoid any issues on the trip.
