Sainte Chapelle (Holy Chapel)

8 Boulevard du Palais, 75001 Paris

Located inside of the medieval complex of Palais de la Cité (Judicial palace) in the island Île de la Cité in the heart of Paris, the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle was built in 1243-1248 on request of French King Louis IX of France. The original purpose was to house the King´s collection of Passion relics, including Christ's Crown of Thorns - one of the most important relics in medieval Christendom. The chapel is considered among the highest achievements of the Rayonnant period of Gothic architecture.
