Visit: Sainte-Chapelle, 8 Boulevard du Palais, 75001 Paris France

Get to see this newly restored, beautiful and quite intimate chapel from the 13th century, admire its mesmerizing stained glass windows.
Built in seven years, an impressive feat, the Sainte Chapelle was intended to house precious Christian relics, including Christ's crown of thorns, acquired by Saint Louis. Having these sacred relics in his possession made the already powerful monarch head of western Christianity. 
Adorned with a unique collection of fifteen glass panels and a large rose window forming a veritable wall of light, the Sainte-Chapelle is a gem of French Gothic architecture. Arranged across 15 windows, each 15 metres high, the stained glass panes depict 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments recounting the history of the world until the arrival of the relics in Paris.

We purchased Skip the Line tickets the day before. Whilst the normal queue was not excessive it would have taken 45 minutes to 60 minutes to gain entry. With Skip the Line we were in in 10 minutes.
At this venue Skip the Line was not clearly indicated so make sure you look for it as we did stand for 10 minutes in the normal line thinking it was Skip the Line.

We went at 9am, which was wonderful as there were very few people. Simply stunning chapel of intricate stained glass!! Easy tour, well worth it.

Having advance access saved us time and got to enjoy the beauty of this magnificent structure. Buying tickets ahead of time is highly recommended.

We have used Viator for years on various trips. This year we used it extensively for our week in Paris with 6 teenagers (not all ours!). It got us to the heads of lines all over and skipped REALLY long lines. It is such a blessing to be able to not spend your time in line and see all the icons without any hassles! Thank you Viator!

One of the prettiest churches I have seen. You must go. Lots of steps so be ready. Wonderful vendors close by as well.

We truly enjoyed our visit to this beautiful and historic church. The stained glass windows were most impressive.

Sainte Chapelle was very beautiful and it was not crowded at all. No lines to get into the chapel and gorgeous stained glass. A must do when in Paris!

Nice little trip to fit in if you don’t have much time. Chapel is pretty but it’s relatively simple. Enjoyed but was only there about 30 minutes

We had a job to find this, but it was worth the looking. Lovely old church. I just loved the old churches.
