Royal Gothic chapel
Why locals love it
A famous and beloved French king (Saint Louis) ordered the construction of this amazing Catholic church in 1239 to house his collection of religious relics (known as "the relics of the Passion"). It's said that this purchase cost half the annual budget of the French kingdom.
Why you should visit it
The rose window, the ceiling height and the delicate stained-glass windows depicting bible scenes make this church unique. It is recognised as one of the greatest achievements of Gothic architecture. Entrance is €8.50.
The relics are now housed at Notre Dame Cathedral. Practising Catholics can venerate them on the first Friday of every month at 3 pm.
