This is not a huge church but the stained glass windows are beyond belief! You start out by entering the crypt area which is nice but nothing to write home about then you climb a tiny circular stairwell and come out in the main nave...More

Beautiful chapel...I actually preferred this to Notre Dame. Used the Museum Pass to skip the line to buy tickets so were able to walk right in. There were several spiral steps required to get to the second level, but it’s worth the climb.

Smaller than one might think, but very worth the effort. We went in the early morning, which is what I recommend to get great light coming in though the stained glass windows. Wow, impressive!

We stopped in to see this venue because it was recommended to us and I would agree it is worth the visit. Small but beautiful stain glass not far from Notre Dame.

I have never seen a more beautiful chapel anywhere in the world. The stained glass is riveting and awe inspiring. We went late in the day when the lines had gone down. Easy to visit this in conjunction with the Notre Dame.

Totally worh going to especially if the sun is out becasue the stained glass in the church is amazing and when the sun lights it up, you won't believe your eyes! Its also small so you don't need a lot of time here.

Not the biggest chapel and when you enter you may be a bit disappointed.... But that is just the first level, just go up the stairs and be prepared to have your jaw drop. The main chapel is surrounded by 15 metre high stain glass...More

Go early so you have enough time to sit and just be amazed by the colors. Even if cloudy, the colors are amazing

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,
