Climb up to the second floor, and be prepared to see the most beautiful stained glass windows and roses, dating from the middle ages, and built by King Saint Louis.

Irrespective of some of the negative reviews, this is a must visit, when in Paris, but you go there to appreciate the chapel for what it is, not what it isn't. Firstly unlike Notre Dame & Sacre Coeur, you have to pay to go in.10...More

A jewel box of gothic architecture. One of my favorite spaces in Paris. The upper chapel is amazingly beautiful with extraordinary stained glass windows and the lower chapel that most people tend to ignore or pass through quickly is so beautiful in its own way....More

We stopped in quickly to tour the church and were not disappointed. The stained glass was beautiful and the story about the crown of thorns is very intriguing. Narrow winding staircase to get in. Near the Justice Department so many armed police in the area.

Sainte-Chapelle is worth a visit to view the amazing stained glass though my opinion is that it should be free to get in (like Notre Dame).

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,
