Sainte Chapelle is a gothic chapel, built on Ile de la Cite, the Paris Island, in 1246 during the Middle Ages.

King Saint Louis bought the Christ's Crown of Thorns from Constantinople, nowadays Istambul. The King commissioned Sainte Chapelle as the crown's schrine in his Cite Palace, nowadays the Conciergerie.
