It was built in the mid 13th century by Louis IX, at the heart of the royal residence, the Palais de la Cité. It was built to house the relics of the Passion of Christ. Adorned with a unique collection of fifteen glass panels and a large rose window forming a veritable wall of light,the Sainte-Chapelle is a gem of French Gothic architecture. Designated world heritage site by UNESCO.

Bought tickets to hear the Vivaldi - Four Seasons concert. The best concert I've ever heard in one of the most beautiful churches I've ever been in. Beware if you go during the summer because it is very warm inside due to all of the windows.

My second visit to this church. Windows are being restored presently so don't get the full effect of the surround experience of the stained glass. Queue to get in for airline security check. Would like more information about sanctuary area.

The title doesn't begin to do the chappel justice, walking up the steps and coming thru the door to the hall is surreal. The sheer magnitude of stain glass and the detail has to be seen to be believed. History buffs will adore this chapel but even if you aren't the beauty will take your breath away!!!

When you walk up the stairs into the cathedral, you will be speechless! Visiting is well worth it, just to see the reactions of other people's faces. Beautiful stained glass that is a definite must see! Beware, the line can be somewhat long (not anything close to Notre Dame), but worth it.

You must visit Sainte-Chappelle. It is so gorgeous - a real gem. It was smaller than I imagined it, but truly so impressive and beautiful. Well worth a visit!
