That morning we visited St. Chappelle. This church was built by Louis the XV to house Christ’s Crown of Thorns.  Purchasing the crown coast three times as much as building the chapel.  It is well known for it’s amazing windows.  Each set of windows tells a different section of the Old Testament.

The rose window was built 200 years later in a different style of glass.
