The stained glass facade, Sainte Chapelle

Sainte Chapelle (The holy chapel),in Paris, France

Upper chapel, Sainte Chapelle

This chapel, built in the 13th century, is one of the greatest stained glass facade in the world.
Now it’s under the renovation, by Saint Gobain, a famous glass manufacturer in France.

I never like the gothic architecture. But I admit that the natural lighting is really something here. Worth a visit.

And a funny thing : these days, we tend to build buildings of flashy exterior facades. Here is quite an opposite situation: rather plain exterior facade with flashy interiors!
