Relic of the Crown of Thorns in Tunisia

Kept inside the hallowed Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul in Tunis, the capital of Tunisia.

A mini version of the royal medieval Gothic Sainte-Chapelle of Paris.

A wondrous reliquary rich in the golden cord of tradition.

The French colonial Empire produced a great deal of beauty in these lands for these peoples and the French did not take it away with them.
