The stained glass windows in this church tells the stores of the bible via the pictures in the windows. I was there in the morning and the light was just perfect. If you enjoy boosting old churches or just like stained glass art, Sainte-Chapell will...More

Such a beautiful church with wonderful glass paintings. It must have been so laborious to paint the glasses. You can sit hours gazing at the art illustrated on the glasses. I loved it :)

If you find yourself in the area the chapel is absolutely worth a visit. While a little pricey, the quality of light and the solemn atmosphere offer a delightful respite from the frenetic city.

It is really only one room, but it is really worth seeing. The windows seem to fill the entire surface of the walls and the colours just arent the same looking at a photo.

Sainte-Chapelle is close to Notre Dame and should not be missed. It was the chapel for the French kings but "Chapel" does not do it justice. The stained glass windows are amazing. We all had an OMG feeling when we walked into the chapel. I...More

I went to Sainte-Chapelle in the morning. I did not have to wait to get in and it was utterly beautiful - even more when the sunlight hits the windows. Definitely recommend!

Beautiful, old stained glass windows. On entry to the chapel it literally took my breath away - small but perfectly formed. Don't just look up, take the time to admire the floors and carvings outside as well.

Although this is hidden within a larger building (the French version of a Supreme Court, I think), the interior of the church is breathtaking! I only wish they had chairs/pews so we could sit and linger! The stairs up and back down were difficult to...More

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,
