King St. Louis IX built this chapel to house relics he brought back from Jerusalem. And the decor is nearly worthy of those sacred artifacts. The spectacular colors, from the stained glass windows to the brilliant night-sky ceiling resplendent with golden stars, will connect you...More

Do not skip this jewel of Paris. If you are in the area near Notre Dame, definitely visit this beauty. We were here in July and the line was a bit long to get in ( go through the security). Then, there is another line...More

Sainte-Chapelle is home to some of the most detailed and stunning stained glass art in all of Christendom. Located in the former royal palace (now home to a judicial building), the church is a must see in any visit to Paris. Visitors will pass through...More

One of the must visit places when in Paris. One can witness colorful large stain glass windows during bright sunny days.

We ran across a poster advertising concerts at the Sainte-Chapelle. It was a lovely experience. Seeing the glorious windows during sunset coupled with the beautiful music was an unforgettable experience. Highly recommended!

One of the prettiest places we have visited as a family. To walk up the stairs and being confronted by the beautiful colours was truly a memorable experience. We booked online and got the visit to The Concierge with Histopad which we also enjoyed .

The stained glass at Saint Chapelle is unsurpassed! Strongly recommended although the stairs were a trial with my bad knees

It was everything you hope it is! The colors and architecture are amazing! My only wish is it were a functioning Church. The only downside of the experience is that it was crowded. But with the Chapel that is to be expected! It is a...More

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

There is no dress code. But Notre Dame is an active place of worship (Sainte-Chapelle not) ..... might be a good reason to not under dress.

I would tour in addition to the concert. Walking around the church clockwise and seeing the story of the bible in the stained glass, from Genesis to the resurrection, is wonderful. It takes time and is a masterpiece. I... More
