This church is absolutely stunning with the floor to ceiling stained glass. I visited a few churches during a trip to Paris and this was my favorite.

Stunning stained glass - words can't describe the beauty. One thing I had a bit of a problem with was the enclosed spiral stairs to go up one level. Thankfully it wasn't too long so I made it ok by having my husband go ahead of me and I closed my eyes and held on to his shirt. Claustrophobic people may have a challenge with this -- it is definitely worth the effort.

This made my top list of wishes when visiting Paris. It is absolutely stunning! The light that comes in without having a single lit bulb is amazing. Equally amazing is that both our children (14, 9) were free. Gotta love the free museums for ages <18 in France. Well worth the visit!

I was stunned at the beauty of this place. By far our favorite church in Paris. There was an audible gasp when we walked in. We went early so it wasn't as crowded but there were still a lot of people there. Don't miss this one.
