Today we started our day by going to Sainte-Chapelle. If you're not familiar with Sainte-Chapelle, it's a beautiful cathedral with amazing stained glass windows. It was built in 1248 for King Louis IX. There are 15 panels of stained glass, each who's scene tells a different story. The lines are long to get into this cathedral, even if you have a museum pass. It doesn't take very long to go through the cathedral either, but it is well worth the wait you may have.
After leaving Sainte Chapelle, we went to the Conciergerie next door. This was a prison where 2780 victims were guillontined, including Marie-Antoinette. When you first walk into the building, you are in the massive Hall of Men-at Arms. I thought the architecture was amazing.
Inside this reoom are 4 huge fireplaces. I stood inside one of them so you could see how large they are.
After this, we went to Les Invalides church. Here, we toured the military museums and saw the tomb of Napleon.
I don't particularly care for military museums, but this one was very interesting. My favorite parts were the displays of armour. It was amazing. I have no idea where they could have found that much armour.
Napoleon's Tomb was quite elaborate. His tomb lies under a golden dome.
I tend to get very tired in museums, as all of the standing is very difficult on my back. And even though that was the case today, we saw some wonderful places that I really enjoyed.
