Always Gorgeous

Lots of travellers to France get a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of churches there are to visit while you are there.  Sometimes it seems that there is a must visit place of worship on every corner and, if pushed, I’ll admit to a little bit of church fatigue at different times.

However, I never get tired of the beautiful stained glass windows the French churches almost always contain. The light shining on the coloured glass presents you with a real life kaleidoscope that I could stare at for hours.

One of my favourite examples of spectacular stained glass is, of course, Paris’ Sainte-Chapelle.  The climb to the chapel is worth it for the wall to wall jewel box that awaits you.

Try to visit on a sunny day – I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Until next time – au revoir.

  1. Love your France photographs and short, interesting write-ups. Over a fifteen year period, I lived in Europe and Asia. Paris was a favorite city to visit. I’m into family & friends photographs and sunsets! Some I take, some borrowed! It’s the memories to keep!

  2. Sainte-Chapelle is my absolute FAVORITE church in all of Paris. So unexpected to see such a stunning heaven-like masterpiece – you don’t suspect it by the looks of the downstairs bit! Sorry for all of the comments, but I adore Paris as well and when I’m not there, all I can do is count the days until I go back :)
