Description:

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.

Very beautiful. Skip the line tickets are always recommended since the line ups can be long.

It was wonderful that we had skip the line tickets. We were able to walk right in while there was a very long line of others wanting in standing in the sun. This is not a guided tour but a look on your own. There are informational cards in a variety of languages available to view or audio tours for purchase. The stained glass is amazing.

Just about everywhere you look the architecture and detail is great. When you enter the area where the chapel is you expect to be seeing much more than you actually see, but what you do see is pretty cool.

Sainte Chapelle was lovely, but not sure you need skip the line access at this attraction.
