The Sainte-Chapelle is the finest royal chapel to be built in France and features a truly exceptional collection of stained-glass windows. It was built in the mid 13th century by Louis IX, at the heart of the royal residence, the Palais de la Cité...more

This chapel is just beautiful, even the “lobby/bookstore”.
There is not much to it except to appreciate the stained glass which are individual pictures from the Law and the Prophets of the Old Testament. Simply lovely.
Sainte-Chapelle is truly breathtaking. I recommend trying to go on a sunny(ish) day to really appreciate the majestic stain glass window of the upper level. It's not a large facility, but we still spend the better part of an hour enjoying this truly extravagant piece...More
Sainte-Chapelle has some of the most beautiful stained glass I have ever seen. The ground floor is impressive, but the upstairs will take your breath away. If you like history, take time to visit the Conciergerie next door.
This was a suggested thing to do in Paris so I added it to my list but wasn't expecting a lot. The chapel has two layers and you walk into the first one which is nicely decorated in red and blue but not overwhelming. But...More
When you enter the first floor of Sainte-Chapelle you may ask yourself, what is all the fuss about this place. A small floor with small windows that does not have any charm. However when you go to second floor you feel shame because of these...More

Of all the cathedrals my wife and I visited duringour Christmas holiday in Paris, Sante-Chapelle was my favourite. There are no words to describe how stunning the stained glass windows are. An audio guide is mandatory for explaining each of the panel.
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,
welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
