When touring the Catheau the Royal Chapels interior can be viewed from the ground floor and the balcony floor. These vantage points provide a clear view of the entire chapel, including the amazing painting on the ceiling, without having to allow the crowds to actually enter the chapel itself.

The only bad part was we could not get close up, we had to see it from far away and take pictures from far away.

I don't think that there is any part of the castle, which is not the highest standard in art. This chapel is also a masterpiece.

It's truly stunning, probably my favorite!! But all the rooms of the Palace are unbelievable. TIP: Arrive no later then 8:45 am to line up for security (everyone has to do this regardless of what tickets you have for entry) and plan to stay the day. Rent bikes, golf cart or take the train as it's too much gardens to... More

Not sure that the visitor can have more than a view from the top floor, which is already to be done. As far as I remember, the visitors cannot go inside and pray for instance. We had the chance to be there for a concert of Charpentier with William Christie and it was incredible. Every single detail is beautiful, the... More

While the Chapel is visible through the doors on the ground floor and balcony, the best way to fully admire it's splendour is with a tour. It's not expensive and you can get tickets on-line!

It was a lovely chapel and thankfully no one was inside it. You could see it from the ground level and upstairs too. But had to queue to reach the rope up and down stairs.
