Always Gorgeous


St Chapelle

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.

About Janelle

I believe that every woman can bring French style and joie de vivre to her life, no matter where she happens to live in the world. She only needs to know a secret or two to be on her way. When you join the Distant Francophile community, you’ll learn the style and grooming secrets that will help you to dress with the confidence so many French women seem to have.

    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!

    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 🙂
