Unbelievable Sainte-Chapelle

sainte chappelle

PARIS, France – This was an incredible feast for the eyes and ears: Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’ inside Sainte-Chapelle, the “holy chapel,” in all its stained-glass glory. That would be 1,113 stained glass windows to be exact, depicting the same number of scenes from the Old and New Testaments. This beauty was built in only seven years – impressive for the 13th Century – and it’s said to have been home to Christ’s crown of thorns.
