Paris. 

 

Many of the most well-known tourist sites are the Champs-Élysées, the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Seinne River, and Notre Dame. 

 

Nonetheless, there is also a very astoundingly beautiful place in Paris that less people visit; that is the Sainte-Chappelle.  

 

說到巴黎,

許多然最熟悉的有迷人的香舍里榭大道,標誌性的艾菲爾鐵塔或是塞納河與

聖母院。

但在巴黎,同樣有個地點也是非常漂亮但比較少人會去的地點,

那就是聖徒禮拜堂Sainte-Chapelle 

 

Initially, when making plans for sight-seeing, I didn’t notice Sainte-Chappele.  From looking at images on postcards in a store, I discovered that Paris had many amazing sights that I hadn’t included in my original itinerary.  When I saw a postcard with the image of Sainte-Chapelle, I immediately decided that the destination was a must-see.  

 

一開始我在規劃巴黎景點的時候也沒有注意到聖徒禮拜堂而是到當地後看到商

店販賣的明信片才讓我發現,原來巴黎還有如此令人驚豔的景點。

立刻將某天的行程調整去Sainte-Chapelle 一探究竟

 

However, when I first arrived to the chapel, I noticed how different it was from the original image I saw on the postcard.  Upon my entry, I didn’t see large masterpieces of stained glass, but instead, a somewhat simple church.  I felt rather dissapointed and was prepared to leave, but then I discovered a small spiral staircase next to the entrance; I began to go up the narrow, spiral staircase, and then I saw the spectacular stained glass.  Different pieces of stained glass came into view with some of the most beautiful and colorful images I have ever seen.  The refractions of light in every piece of glass showcased a full design of beauty. 

 

但是剛到的時候發現,怎麼跟原本看到的明信片上畫面不同,沒看到大片的彩

繪玻璃,而是一座小教堂,正當覺得失望要離開的時候發現入口的旁邊有個很

小的螺旋階梯,然後就跟著大家一起走上去,然後就看到那絕美的彩繪玻璃,

一片片映入眼簾彩繪玻璃的是我看過最美的景色。每一塊的玻璃在光線的折射

下充滿美麗的光彩

 

 

While enjoying my fascinating surroundings, I asked the tour guide as to why there is such a dramatic difference in design between the upper and lower churches.  He told me that the upper floor of Chapelle was used to keep the holic relics and was primarily used by the royal family and their guests. 

 

Additionally, he explained that the lower level was used by courtiers; the servants and soldiers that lived in the palace. 


As for the relics, ‘’the crown of thorns’’of Jesus, was purchased by King Louis IX from the King of Jerusalem and stored in the Chapelle for a period of time, and then moved to Notre Dame until the fire of 2019 in Notre Dame de Paris.

 

Following the fire, the crown was relocated to the Louvre for protection.

 

在欣賞美景的同時也問了一下現場的導覽,會甚麼會有上下兩個教堂的差異,

原來過去上層教堂是保存著聖物,並專門供給皇室和他們的客人使用。

下層則是宮中的朝臣、僕人和士兵使用。

而這個聖物,就是耶穌的"荊棘冠冕" ,是當時的法王路易九世從耶路撒冷王購

買取得後,就存放在這裡,然後再移到了巴黎聖母院存放,直到2019年聖母院

失火,才緊急的移到羅浮宮存放。

This is the interior of the lower church, the statue is King Louis IX

 

 

The design concept of the entire Sainte-Chapelle is typical of French Gothic Architecture.  



This style of architecture focuses on adding an abundant amount of detail to the Gothic towering spire, and the overall purpose is to attain a sense of space unity.  Exquisite decorations and a multitude of large windows fill the space with light; the most famous building that incorporates these design ideas is Notre Dame, in its famed rose window.  

 

This particular gothic style of architecture was most popular among European royals at that time, since it could demonstrate imperial power and devotion to the Gods.  

 

Some churches and palaces in Italy, England, and Spain also adopted certain features from French Gothic Architecture design to blend with their own unique style.

 

整個聖禮拜堂的設計概念是典型的法國哥特式建築(Rayonnant)

是將哥德式的高聳尖塔式設計加以更多的設計,追求轉向更多的空間統一、

精緻的裝飾和更多更大的窗戶,讓空間充滿光線,最著名的便是聖母院的

大玫瑰窗。

而這樣的設計更廣受當時歐洲各王室的喜愛,可以彰顯皇權與對神的虔誠,

包括義大利、英國、西班牙的一些教堂或宮殿也都採用了法國哥特式建築

的設計概念。

 

The stained glass tells stories of the Bible and how the holy objects of Jesus came to France

 

It is important to take note that the entire Sainte-Chapelle is magnificent.  It takes about 2-3 hours to tour it in its entirety because in addition to the beauty of the architecture and glass, there are also carvings and paintings on the walls that are great works.  Only by experiencing the power of France in that age, and the prosperous art from that time, can one build such a perfect monument.  

 

其實整個聖禮拜堂真的很宏偉巨大,真的要仔細看完大概需要2~3小時,

因為除了建築與玻璃的美以外,像是牆壁上的雕刻與繪畫,同樣也是很棒的

傑作,可以完全的體會到當時法國的強大與藝術的鼎盛,才能建造出如此

完美的傑作。
