Places in France

Sainte-Chapelle, Paris:

A wonderful place to visit.

  Beautiful stained glass windows, a statue of Louis IX, Saint Louis, by the altar and wonderful carved doors leading to a balcony upstairs with depictions of scenes from the Old Testament.  Adam and Eve, Noah and the Ark.  This chapel is well worth visiting and quite beautiful.
Built in the 13th century and as a place for the religious relics of a true
piece of the Holy Cross and other religious items.

Wonderful stained glass: so beautiful, lovely colours and light.

Carving on door: the building of Noah's Ark:

The Sainte-Chapelle in on the Ile de la Cite, next to the Conciergierie. It is lovely
to wander around this area of Paris with the flower markets and the wonderful views of
the River Seine and the famous land-marks of the city.
