Tours for Sainte Chapelle
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.

Beautiful chapel. Far more impressive than Notre Dame. The 15 stained glass windows go through 15 significant stories from the Bible, from Genesis to Exodus to the Crucifixion to the Apocalypse. Definitely worth a visit, if nothing else to admire the technical artistry of the stained glass.
We went on a weekday with the Paris Museum Pass just before lunch. The museum pass line had no wait. Entering the first level, the glass and ceiling are beautiful with many areas to explore and things to read. The big moment is walking up the stairs in the corner to the main floor. My goodness the stained glass is massive, encompassing and each tells a unique story. Everyone has the same reaction when they walk up - just WOW! Is a must see and can easily be combined with Notre Dame in the same morning or afternoon.
Just remember. The Chapel is UPSTAIRS!!!. The entrance is at the ground floor. Take the stairs on your left as you enter to reach the actual Chapel
Very cool stained glass church. We didn't prioritize this and just popped in when we could. People seem to stay a while but we felt that 15 minutes or so was plenty to get the shots and get out and away from the mobs. Quite a dramatic building though and happy we went to shoot it!
Some reviewers made the mistake I nearly made... The first room you enter is the basement, not the Chapelle itself.. In good French style , no signs to tell you this though. Take the stairs at left when you enter. They take you to the actual Chapelle.. awesome !
