The Sainte-Chapelle is a royal medieval Gothic chapel in the Île de la Cité section of Paris. The chapel was commissioned by King Louis IX and completed in the mid-13th century. It is considered among the highest achievements of the Rayonnant phase of Gothic architecture, which is marked by strong vertical lines and a sense of weightlessness. Its most famous features are the stained glass windows, of which nearly two-thirds are original, making it one of the most extensive 13th-century stained glass collections anywhere in the world.
