“One of a kind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

You can never imagine the beauty hidding inside if you watch the chapel from the outside. Once you go inside you can't stop staring ath the thousand stained glass figures. The light comming in from the glass make the place look like it's out of this world. The only thing is that the ticket is pricy for such a small space but well...Paris is pricy anyway. Don't miss it though since it's one of a kind and nowhere else to be found in the world

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The review i read in my book did not begin to describe how beautiful this little Chapel is - if you visit Notre Dame - take the extra time to visit Saint Chappellle - it is just as impressive as Notre Dame but in a different way.

“Stained Glass”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Beautiful glass and the refurbishment process itself is a work of art. Still some areas being refurbished. When completed it will be magnificent.

“You will be impressed no matter what”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I know nothing about stained glass, have no idea of how hard it is to make and therefore do not think of it as being impressive. But once you enter the top chamber of the Sainte-Chapelle, I would bet that any person seeing it would be completely mesmerized by the sight. It was one of the most awe-inspiring things I have seen in my life. This is something one has to see if in Paris. I would recommend getting the museum pass that saves a great amount of time in the lines (especially in Summer).
