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.

Well worth the walk up the winding staircase to view this lovely church with the stained glass windows.
One of the most underrated visits in Paris. This is a must see, the stained glass alone is worth the visit. Hope for a sunny day so you can really see the glass in all of its glory. We got there early in the morning (9AM) and didn't have a line to deal with, even with Notre Dame closed.
This was the best way to see this magnificent church, firstly it was cheaper than buying tickets at the door and secondly we skipped the huge line to get in. Highly recommend!
This is a must see when in Paris. It was lovely to "skip the line" and the place itself is magnificent. I highly recommend it.
Skip the line was a good idea as the line was fairly long and moved slowly. St Chapelle is not a huge facility and people tend to spend quite a bit of time simply being in such a special place.
I have visited twice before and took my adult son and two of his young daughters on this visit. They were impressed with the lower level - the Royal blue ceiling vaults, the windows, the fleur de lis motif but when I suggested we climb the stairs and entered the upper level they were gobsmacked and speechless with awe! As was I on this third visit. Unmissable
The stained glass windows are truely amazing, have not seen anything quite like it. Our Guide Daniel guide gave informative and relevant information. Take the time to do the tour - you will not be disappointed.
This is a must see. We went early, just after opening time. A good time to go. By the time we finished it was crowded. An incredible place that has so much beauty. Loved it.
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.
There was so much to learn and enjoy in the stunning display of stain glass windows. It was, however, difficult to figure out how to work the media guide and there wasn't a very friendly staff person present to explain. We finally gave up trying to locate the windows the media guide was trying to describe but as we were leaving; we saw laminated cards that may have been helpful. It is an absolutely stunning site to see, but the presentation of the information needs improvement, in my opinion. I would still recommend visiting this church because it really has alot to offer.
Skip the line and discover Sainte Chapelle at your own rhythm. This monument is one of the jewel of French patrimony located near Notre-Dame de Paris and la Conciergerie.
