Saint Chapel

Gothic masterpiece and house of the relics of Jesus Christ, the holy chapel was built in the 13th century thanks to King Louis IX also known as Saint Louis. Devout Catholic, justice king and participant in two crusades, placed this architectural jewel in the heart of the Royal Palace called Cité, residence of the kings of France from the 6th to the 14th century. The chapel is located in the main historical area in Paris called 'ile de la cité' where the Parisii, a gallic tribe, settled down calling it Lutetia. The temporary and spiritual power lived hand in hand. Childebert built the first cathedral while Hugues Capet established his royal council and government turning it thus in the seat of royal power  in the 10th century
