Sainte-Chapelle is almost impossible to describe with words. The soaring walls of stained glass fill the space with diffused sunlight, offering the visitor a unique experience of calm and delight. The only other building that for me comes close to this one in its antiquity...More

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
