Sainte Chapelle welcomes an average of 900,000 visitors per year; its design and cultural significance in Paris have established a firm footing in history. The first thing one would notice on entering this site is its iconic stained glass windows. At first glance, apart from its gothic architectural style, you would not notice anything unusual about the building; once you step into the upper chapel, prepare to be mesmerized by the beautiful ceiling-to-roof stained glass windows. If the myriad of colors on the glass weren’t enough to add to their appeal, keep an eye out for the various biblical narratives depicted on them!
There are 15 stained glass windows within the Sainte Chappelle, depicting about 1,113 separate narratives taken from the old and new testament.
