Get a ticket without queuing and a booklet for a self-guided tour. Spend an hour admiring the spectacular stained-glass windows that make Sainte Chapelle the jewel of French Gothic. The stained-glass panes, which are spread over 15 15-meter-high windows, show 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments telling the story of the world until the arrival of the relics in Paris.

The history of the Sacred Chapel is closely related to sacred relics and objects such as the Crown of Thorns or the image of Edessa that were kept there. Having these sacred relics in his possession made the already powerful monarch the head of Western Christianity and allowed him to gain power and influence.

The Shepherdess Of Rolleboise By Daniel Ridgway Knight, Oil Painting

The Shepherdess Of Rolleboise By Daniel Ridgway Knight, Oil Painting

Daniel Ridgway Knight (1839-1924): The Shepherdess of Rolleboise, 1896, oil on canvas, 172.7 x 128.2 cm, Brooklyn Museum, New York City

A dreamy mood prevails in this dignified image of a French shepherdess. The pastoral setting provides a poetic backdrop to her youth and beauty, creating a picture that erases the social realities of peasant life. Daniel Ridgway Knight was well aware of this painting’s potential for success when it debuted at the Paris Salon in 1896; it combined the silvery gray palette and romanticized peasant subject matter that were then popular in Europe.

The Porsche Macan Turbo Is Back With More Power

The Porsche Macan Turbo

This is the new Porsche Macan Turbo and here are the headlines: a new light bar in full width behind. Just kidding. There is a little more behind it than just LED nonsense. Porsche has indeed found a replacement for the shift: German wisdom.

The Macan Turbo has lost its 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine and traded a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6. It is the same hot-V engine with turbochargers in the cylinder blocks for better throttle response as in the Panamera, Cayenne and the Audi RS4.

The Porsche Macan Turbo

So same engine layout and over half a liter less displacement. And yet the performance has increased from just under 400 hp to 434 hp. With some help from the launch control and the optional Sport Chrono package, 0-62 mph in 4.3 seconds will be done and dusted off 0.3 seconds earlier. Of course it’s an optional extra. That’s a Porsche, people.

What is standard, are better, more beautiful brakes. “Better,” because they are tungsten carbide coated steel rotors that reduce wear, improve stopping distance, and apparently significantly reduce brake dust, so your precious alloys always look elegant. And “prettier”? Yes, thanks to the coating, which gives the windows an eerie shine.

The Porsche Macan Turbo

Macanspotters, if there are such people, can also spot the new ultimate version by looking for the redesigned front air intakes and a double roof spoiler that is a bit tamer than the name Pimp My Ride suggests. Boo. Inside are multiple adjustable electric seats, a better touchscreen (like the rest of the updated Macan family) and as usual space for five people.

The Porsche Macan Turbo

As a entry-level Porsche SUV, the Macan Turbo is the cheapest way to get into a Porsche with the highest range. It’s £ 68,530, which makes it a bit cheaper than TG’s most popular Fast’n’Mall SUV, the Merc-AMG GLC 63 S. On the other hand, the AMG is whopping 60 horsepower and makes a noise like a thunderstorm barefoot on some Lego. Can you set a price for it?

So, which one would you have?
