The Sainte Chapelle ought not be be standing any more. It was sold for the worth of its construction materials during the anti-religious French Revolution. But the buyer was very disappointed, what he expected to be stone walls turned out to be glass, of no worth to him, so he let it stand.
Thanks to this, one can visit this wonderful chapel, well worth the long wait for entry, and the climb up the flight of stairs. The result is a treat, with gorgeous stain glass and a wonderful ceiling. But don't expect the grandeur of Notre Dame. This is a chapel, not a cathedral.
Still, no visit to Paris is complete without a visit.
