The Sainte-Chapelle Holy Chapel is a royal chapel in the Gothic style, within the medieval Palais de la Cité in Paris.

The most famous features of the chapel, are the fifteen great stained-glass windows in the nave and apse of the upper chapel, which date from the mid-13th century, as well as the later rose window (put in place in the 15th century). The thousands of small pieces of glass turn the walls into great screens of coloured light, largely deep blues and reds, which gradually change in intensity from hour to hour. It really is a truly magnificent sight to behold.
