Story: Sainte-Chapelle Concert Series

Located on the Île de la Cité, just minutes from Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Sainte-Chapelle is one of France's most visited monuments. Although this is the case, only a fraction of the million visitors who pass through the chapel's ornately carved doors each year have the privilege of attending an exclusive classical concert on the other side.

Reviews

A very good evening

A beautiful concert, in a divine location, the Sainte Chapelle, followed by a dinner in a bistro that was a real find,"les fous de l'Ile". The welcome was lovely, the cuisine inventive and modern with traditional flavors. A real success.

Magical historical evening

I thought the ambiance, location and concert were incredible. We were very sensitive to the location and the history of the Sainte-Chapelle but seeing a concert in it made it all more special. I wish we had been given a program instead of having to purchase it.

Wonderful evening

Excellent concert! Everything was beautiful and we enjoyed every minute of it! The only thing was that the weather was very hot and the Sainte-Chapelle doesn’t have ventilation.

Concert in a jewel venue

Beautiful music in a beautiful setting! The musicians were very talented and the acoustics in the chapel were outstanding. The concert lasted for 1 hour. Definitely worth the price of admission.

History and Fun Facts about the Sainte-Chapelle

Paris’ Sainte-Chapelle (Holy Chapel) is one of the finest remaining examples of Gothic French architecture. Built in the first half of the thirteenth century, it belongs to the ‘Rayonnant’ period, an architectural style characterized by an increased emphasis on ornate decoration rather than grand size. The chapel formed part of the medieval Palais de la Cité, where the French monarchy resided until the 14th Century. It was originally built to house Louis IX’s priceless collection of relics, including the Crown of Thorns of Christ, one of Christianity’s most cherished artifacts. Although damaged during the French Revolution, the chapel was restored to its shimmering prime thanks to a major renovation during the 19th century.

 

Much of the chapel as it appears today is the fruit of reconceptions by its various skilled restorers. But two thirds of the chapel’s most distinctive element, its magnificent stained glass paneling, are completely authentic. With 15 windows that stretch to 15 meters high, the Sainte Chapelle contains one of the most extensive collections of stained glass anywhere in the world. Its panels depict a total of 1,113 scenes from both the Old and New Testament. This array of scenes and colors was no doubt intended as the defining feature of the chapel’s infinitely elaborate interior, but its remaining non-stained glass walls are also richly coloured and decorated. Equally impressive is the chapel’s high vaulted ceiling, painted deep blue and gold so as to resemble the night sky. Each year the Sainte Chapelle plays host to a diverse programme of classical concerts and recitals: as a unique Parisian show venue, things don’t get more atmospheric than this!
