It’s already renovated , and very beautiful church. Too bad that it’s not kept by the church, and just as a museum

A jewel of the most fabulous stained glass you will ever see. On our last visit in September 20198 we were amazed to just walk in - usually the lines are very long. If I could only ever visit one place in Paris (where we...More

The church consists of two floors. The second floor is a beautiful gothic style church with over 2ft high of beautiful stained glass all over the church. Best to visit in the afternoon when the sun is shining an the whole place is lit up.

Amazing piece of work. It's lovely to see a gorgeous building from history instead of a nail salon, bowling alley, CVS or the like when on vacation!

The admission price is really worth it considering this is some of the most beautiful and ornate stained glass I've ever seen. Highly recommended if you're in the area to go see Notre Dame!

We stopped by the Sainte-Chapelle on our way to Notre Dame and were blown away by the massive and intricate stained glass. I recommend getting the Paris Pass to skip the line though, as it was quite long. A must-see for sure!

We booked in advance and walked straight in. On every visit I am amazed at the beautiful windows. Thank goodness they have stopped selfie sticks though some tourists were still trying to use them.

This is an amazingly beautiful and inspiring site. Easily the best display of stained glass of all the cathedrals I have seen! I would love to go to a musical performance here as well, if I have the opportunity.

This is a lovely quaint old church with beautiful stained glass windows. I thought the cost at 10 Euros was a bit steep though as it didn't take long to see it.

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,

To my recollection Yes. You go though security at the entry for a security check. I entered with a small backpack.
