  • It is a small building between the east side of the king's square and the king's staircase while the historical building swells in the Gothic Quarter. The spire of the chapel is impressive.

  • It's a single aisle in Gothic style. It is worth missing a few minutes to observe the altarpiece depicting the Crucifixion at the top and down the worship of the Three Kings.
