Chapels of Noble Families
The chapel of a noble family is usually a relatively small building where family members would gather to pray and would eventually be buried. These chapels are usually integral parts of larger architectural complexes such as aristocratic manors, palaces and mansions. They enabled noble families to comply with court etiquette requiring to own a directly accessible private place of worship. These chapels and their decorations were commissioned by wealthy families and they boast rich decorative elements such as frescoes, altarpieces and wooden furnishings.
