Saw the chapel while doing the tour of the palace. Was unaware that you can get a chapel tour on its own. But it was still amazing to see inside. The was so much detail to absorb.

Unfortunately, the Royal Chapel was closed off during our tour, but they still allowed a glimpse inside. This gothic chapel was built in the last years of Louis XIVth reign, and it's history is quite interesting. The king's first architect died before he could complete it, and his son-in-law took over and finished the chapel. Some other rooms were also finished by him.
It was under refurbishment when we were there so we didn't get to go in. It was covered with a printed tarp on the outside. We were able to have a quick look of the interior once we had entered the palace. The painted ceiling looked amazing but the chapel was mostly dark so we weren't able to fully appreciate it.
