Second time visiting. The stained glass was spectacular. There was some construction on one side, which was a bit disruptive. There were 2 small lineups to enter, one for the security and another to buy the tickets. But not too long of a wait.

I feel we have lost a great artisan skill in North America when I see such beautiful works af art such as this one. When the sun shone through the stained glass windows of blues and lavenders etc. it became ethereal to see.

Other than standing in line for forty minutes to get in, the chapel was unique and fascinating. They would benefit by taking some classes in crowd management!

Pricey (8.50 euro) to get in, but this chapel is pretty amazing, with two stories of highly decorated walls and windows.
