Saint Chapelle, 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 Sainte Chapelle in Paris 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 stored 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 crocketed 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 Apostle 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.

Events at Sainte Chapell

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 commences 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 the rediscovery of Relics of Christ to their return to Paris and miracles performed and the then return to King Louis.

      Really satisfied with the trip! All the hotels provided had pretty good location. Shubham Gupta from HUB Holidays was very active throughout all stages of the trip, right from planning the itinerary to the very end. We planned our entire itinerary during late hours and Guptaji was happily available to receive calls during those odd hours also. They entertained even the last minute changes. VISA assistance is also amazingly handled and we had no problem whatsoever. The sightseeing options provided were also good. Over all it is an excellent trip to Paris, Swiss and Italy. Only the Gondola ride at Venice was cancelled due to rain.

    • Trip to Europe

      Me and my wife planned 11 days trip to France and Italy during mid Feb'19. To say that our trip planner Siddhant and his team put together the experience of a lifetime for us, still somehow seems an understatement! When we started planning this trip, we spoke to about two to three different travel planners and while almost all of them were thorough and impressive in their own ways, Siddhant was the one who provided itinerary suggestions which were real time and exactly what we were looking for. Siddhant himself is quite familiar with various destinations across Europe and hence his expertise helped us in planning a wonderful trip. We started our trip from Paris. We stayed in Paris for three days and covered many known places like Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame etc. We also did cruise ride and even visited Indian street in Paris, named Gare du Nord, which had every Indian thing available. From Paris we travelled to Venice and stayed there for two days. Our stay was booked on the canal, which gave an edge to the whole trip. We visited beautiful islands in Venice like Murano, Burano and Torcello. We also enjoyed the scenic beauty of Venice by foot. Did Gandora ride, which was one of the lifetime experience. In Venice we did some shopping too and relished mouth watering handmade chocolates too. From there we travelled to Florence and stayed there for two days. Florence is a perfect place to be discovered on foot, it has very fine and breathtaking architecture. We also did a one day Tuscany tour where we covered Vienna, Siena, vine tasting etc. We were lucky enough to locate and dine in Indian Restaurants in Florence. From Florence we visited our last stop Rome. We stayed in Rome for 3 days and were able to see some lovely places like Colosseum, Vatican City, Fountain Triveni etc. Siddhant helped us in planning everything, right from perfect commute to choosing proper stay location so that we could easily travel to/from station by foot. He also helped us in figuring out stay duration at each place and also helped us in deciding right flight/train timings so we don’t end up wasting a day in just commuting. It’s so important to plan things right when you are travelling by yourself (no group). It turned out to be the most amazing and memorable trip of our lives. And we intend to book our future trips with Siddhant and his team. Thank you Team Duniya Safari :)

    • Trip to Europe

      We have planned for a honeymoon trip to Paris and Swiss and with the travel triangle app we found the Agent Gaurav from Memorable Vacations. Our hotels are excellent in Paris and Interlaken (is in centre location and easy accessible to metros and hotels) in Zurich our hotel nearer by Airport , but is in isolated area, we had to go long distance for sightseeing and foods. In Paris a bit hard to get the sign and metros right and once u get it right you can wander the city with metros. Metros are the cheapest and fastest way of transportation. Taxis are costly and don’t go for it. In Paris we covered Disney land, Tower Eiffel, Louvre Museum, Seine River Cruise and Hop in Hop off Big Bus tour. Everything was perfect for us in Paris expect one thing (the airport transfer to hotel the driver did not arrived at all and we spent 50€ for taxi. Which they said will refund us. The stay is very good and there is a lot of Indians and Indian restaurant but food is bit costly though. In swiss we had Swiss passes for 5days , which is really awesome we can go in bus metros and even in boat unlimited times. We had only two sightseeing, mount Jungfraustrasse and Mount Titlis both are great and very adventurous snow mountain and we spent memorial times thr. And stay in Interlaken is really awesome. I would recommend Travel agent Gaurav from Memorable vacation. They do what promised.

      We had a really great experience with them. Planned our anniversay trip to Bali this year and the services were exceptional. Though the request was on a short notice, our travel organiser Rishabh was very helpful in getting us the best price possible. They have offered us a customized tour package and was patient enough to take our last minute requests. Have been associated with Rishabh since 4 years and he plans all of our trips exceptionally well. Would highly recommend.
