The stained glass windows at Notre Dame Paris deserve a separate post in this blog. Every church in Europe has its own amazing stained glass windows – from its walls to its roof. From Italy to Belgium to Spain, these colourful windows tell a story of Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Kings, Queens, Popes, and Saints. Inside Notre Dame Cathedral, visitors will be dazzled by its stained glass windows. Without them, the cathedral’s interior would be as bland as steamed rice I always eat every day. 😀
The Rose Windows. is, perhaps, the most stunning stained glass inside the cathedral. There are three of them inside. Look for them on the North, South and West sides of the cathedral. Even if I don’t tell you how they look like, you’ll figure it out. They’ll shine and you can’t miss them, really.
The North Rose stained glass windows are entitled, “The Glorification of the Virgin Mary.” Here, you’ll find 80 scenes from the life of the Virgin taken from the Old Testament. The
The South Rose shows the Christ of the Apocalypse in the middle. Figures in the surrounding circles are those of prophets and saints.
The West Rose has the Vices, Virtues and the Zodiac Signs.
Enjoy the rest of these fabulous stained glass windows inside the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
