About Sainte Chapelle, Paris
What can you say about a place that’ll engage your eyes and ears at the same time? If you ever wanted to feel close to Christ, this is a really good place to visit. Louis IX, who was looking to house the “Passion Relics” of Christ, paid for this beautiful Gothic church. Dressed as a penitent, he personally carried the relics, which included the Crown of Thorns, into Sainte-Chapelle. The imperial sanctuary is a prime sample of the stage of Gothic design style called "Rayonnant", distinctive for it’s by its feeling of weightlessness and solid verticals. Getting there will leave you breathless, and you’ll hike up a LOT of steps, but once there, it’s a visual feast. You will loved the stained glass, and the jewel-like walls. For an added bonus, book tickets for the occasional classical music performances scheduled in the evenings. It really adds to the experience. And in case you didn’t know, the Notre Dame Cathedral is next door.

Sainte Chapelle, Paris Reviews - Write a Review
An amazing piece of architecture, looking really modern (open and light) for Middle Age. The interior is finely decorated, both full of patterns and unique pieces of stained glass. Guiding tours don't cost extra and are definitely worth waiting! Plan to go there on a sunny day or you'll miss the colorful ligthing from stained glasses.
Stunning. Our favorite church in Paris. The windows are incredibly beautiful and tell the whole story of the Bible. The visitors literally gasped when they would enter the chapel. Well worth the price of admission.
A stunning piece of architecture with awesome stained glass windows. Looks like someone here missed the best part up the stairs. The best of Paris!
The upper chapel, besides being exquisitely beautiful with its jewel-like stained glass, positively buzzes with energy. Call it spiritual, historical, or aesthetic--it is profoundly inspiring and unforgettable.
Masterpiece of French Gothic chapel with awesome vitrails that used to be available only to French kings. During revolution it was first on the list of being defaced, but somehow survived without much damage. Most stained glass windows are the medieval originals and the few that were destroyed got reconstructed during 19th century. A must see in Paris...
