The Sainte Chapelle was commissioned by Saint Louis in the XIIIth century to host the authentic holy relics of the Passion of Jesus Christ. These are ones of the most beautiful jewels of the High Gothic art. The Palatine Chapel is designed on two superimposed levels. The feat of its construction is therefore huge: the walls of the upper part are replaced by large windows allowing light to pass, only separated by thin pillars beams. More than 600 m2 of windows retrace the old and new Testaments, those citing King David and King Solomon being placed near the king.
