Sainte-Chapelle, Paris
(4.5/5 based on 15,000+ reviews on the web)
Soaring stained glass windows beam a myriad of colored light onto the floor's rich tile mosaics inside Sainte-Chapelle. This house of worship is one of the highest achievements of the Rayonnant period Gothic architecture, and retains one of the most extensive collections of 13th-century stained glass anywhere in the world. Built by the French kings to house the relics of the Crown of Thorns, this "jewel box" structure has two levels and an impressive vaulted ceiling. Sainte-Chapelle is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Paris Edition.

  • The ticket is expensive, considering only the visit to the Chapel, but if you buy the ticket along with the Conciergeria, there are discount. Anyway, it's worth it. Are two floors, the upper floor has gorgeous stained-glass Windows, with rich decoration. Really is awesome!

  • Beautiful stained glass! This is a gem. Quickly visited and not very big, but the combination of beautiful things.

  • This medieval Gothic chapel was not on a list of sights that we were supposed to see with our travel agency. It is quite small so the waiting lines are usually quite long. However if one comes early in the morning (as we did) he might get lucky (as we were) and see the interior of the chapel in relative peace and quiet. The place is unbelievable. Small, dark, but full of history.
  • Under construction when I visited so I'm not sure I got the full extent of it. The lineup was horribly long and the church itself was fairly small. Was not really worth the wait in my opinion.
  • Great but... closed from 1300 to 1415 despite everything - including their own website - that says they're open.
  • Beautiful chapel with gorgeous stain glass windows. It's a must to see and if you have a nice sunny day even better.
  • Make sure to visit La Sainte Chapelle when you go to Paris. It's one of the most amazing churches you'll ever see in your life. The vitreaux are just breathtaking.
