Even under renovation, this little chapel is well worth a visit. It looks like a normal chapel from the ground floor but when you go to the first floor, it is amazing

Magnificent Gothic building. Very beautiful rose windows in it. Perhaps the world's most beautiful church building. Definitely worth a visit. Admission is free for under 18 years of age. Between 13-14 hours each day locked.

Even it has the most beautiful glass windows works in Paris and maybe in the world, it is very small and summer tourist crowds make it difficult to have a good observation.

We didn't know about this chapel until we was that it was included in the Paris Museum Pass. We entered with a small wait (maybe 5-10 minutes through security). At first, I was disappointed, until I realized that I was actually in the lower level and hadn't yet climbed the stairs to the chapel. Once in the chapel, I saw what all the fuss is about. This little chapel has 15 massive stained glass windows that have just gone through renovation - they completely surround the space. If you have some extra time in Paris, it is worth checking this out.
