saint chapelle

Today after studio, Seth and I rushed to meet Eliot at Saint Chapelle. Consecrated in 1248, the gothic chapel reveals Louis IX’s political and cultural ambitions to become the central monarch of western Christendom. The most visually beautiful aspects of the chapel are its stained glass, for which the stonework is a delicate framework, and its rose windows, which were added to the upper chapel in the fifteenth century.

I can’t help but wonder: If Saint Chapelle charges eight Euros per adult admission, why are half the lights out? Tsk, tsk.
