Stained Glass Windows of Sainte Chapelle Restored
In May this year, one of the wonders of medieval Europe, Sainte-Chapelle, is officially back on display in the centre of Paris, after 7 years of painstaking restoration of its stained-glass windows. They have been taken down and cleaned to remove centuries of dirt. The work has been done to mark 800 years since the birth of King Louis IX. He commissioned the building of the chapel in the middle of the 13th Century to house a religious relic.
