Sainte-Chapelle is a 13th century architectural masterpiece. Built by Louis IX, it is a fabulous example of Gothic architecture (and conveniently located right around the corner from Notre Dame). But it's all about the glass, really. There are hardly any walls, just expanses of the most amazing stained glass windows you'll ever see. Poor Louis built the built to house the Crown of Thorns and other fake relics that he paid more for than even the Chapel cost.
