Upper Part of The Sainte-Chapelle

The Sainte-Chapelle, which is no longer used as a place of worship, is regularly used as a concert hall.
However, several times a year, religious ceremonies are organized there by the lawyers, in particular for Saint Yves' day, and also by the Catholic association of magistrates and civil servants of the Law Courts.
