The stained glass windows are not to be missed. Check the schedule, as the Sainte-Chappelle often has classical concerts. Wonderful!

Amazing time spent in Sainte-Chapelle. It is well worth the long queues to get in and the sights will leave you awestruck.

One of the most beautiful temples in Paris! The second flour is stunning! Full of hand painted glass! The experience was unique! You may find a little trouble find the main entrance because it is inside the area of the court. Follow the signs and don’t get inside the court cuz there is police everywhere. I would definitely recommend it!

Jaw dropping chapel with stained glass. It gets very busy, and I would highly recommend getting tickets in advance which gives you expedited access.
