Discovering stained glass


Come and discover the splendour of the stained glass windows in the Basilica of Saint-Denis and create your own stained glass window!


We invite you to take an active and entertaining look at the stained glass windows of Saint-Denis Cathedral Basilica.



From a presentation of the stages involved in designing a stained-glass window, based on examples of the basilica's stained-glass windows from the 12th to the 20th century, to iconographic reading and the study of colors, you'll discover one of the major elements of 12th-century pictorial art, which marked the beginning of stained-glass windows in the Ile-de-France region!
