Description

An exterior, aerial view of Sainte-Chapelle, as seen looking towards the west from the palace gateway. The apse of the chapel is seen on the facing left side. The building is Gothic in style, complete with buttresses, finials, pinnacles, and a tall, thin, and ornately decorated spire. Each buttress contains a gargoyle. There is an angle holding a cross located at the end of the roof's peak on the facing left side.
