Angels of Sainte-Chapelle

Sainte-Chapelle is known for its soaring windows of stained glass.

If you can tear yourself away from being transfixed by these walls of colored light, there are angels hiding in the shadows:

The Cathedral of Saint-Eustache

If you say “cathedral” and “Paris” in the same sentence, you will most likely think of the Cathedral of Notre Dame. But Paris is home to many cathedrals, and one of the most beautiful is Saint-Eustache. It was constructed from 1532 to 1640, with towering gothic arches, walls of light, and the largest organ in Paris. I hope you enjoy this visit to Saint-Eustache.
