Small, but absolutely gorgeous! Worth the money to get in. Watch the video they have upstairs about how they go about cleaning the windows- very interesting.

The light through the stained glass windows make this an enchanting marvel. See it after the vastness of Notre Dame.

Entering Sainte Chapelle early Sunday morning is a great time to wander and marvel at the stained glass. 15 separate panels of stained glass which depict over 1000 scenes from the Bible, both Old and New Testament.

The church seem austere outside. As you enter the ground floor you see nice stained glasses. As you go up the spiral staircase you will be in awe of the magnificence of th floor to ceiling stained glass all around the room. Just beautiful.

This place is just outstanding. The glasses are great and all the history behind. Better to buy the Paris Pass to avoid the line. Still it was very worth it.

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,
