Sainte Chapelle (or, Holy Chapel) at the little town of Champigny-sur-Veude in Poitou Charente which is located between Chinon and Poitiers, is one one of France's best-kept secrets and well-worth the journey. Housing the tombs of two French kings, the Chapel boasts a dazzling display...More

The chapel has amazing colorful glasses, telling bible stories. Also the walls are sculpted with bible themes. Nice to stay, nice to view, nice to photograph.

This small chapel is a jewel well worth seeking out for its amazing windows of stained glass. We learned that these were documentations of the life of St. Louis, the king. Skilled depiction of details in vibrant colors. Well worth a visit.

Don't go out of your way, but if going to lovely Richelieu, you might stop by.
