french chapel

Royal Chapel of Versailles, May 2016. by Sabrina Danielle.

Photographed when I visited the Chateau de Versailles, France. The Sun King (Louis XIV) loved music and dance and thus had a gigantic gilded organ in this royal chapel where the King and his family would hold mass.

Please do not remove my credit.

It took 7 years to finish restoring and cleaning all the stained glass in Sainte-Chapelle. The restoration was finished on what marked the 800th anniversary of King Louis IX’s birth. He commissioned the chapel in the 13th century.
