3 years to span the centuries

More than forty years after its last major restoration, the Royal Chapel requires urgent intervention on the roof timbers, the roof and decorative lead work, the statues and window frames and stained glass. Experience the restoration of this architectural masterpiece.

Work in progress

The Royal Chapel has been under renovation for 289 days.

The end of the construction is scheduled for autumn 2021.
