Highlights
  • Prepare to be dazzled by this Rayonnant Gothic period jewel in Paris, built in just 7 years

Description

Designed in the middle of the 13th century as a monumental reliquary, the beautiful Sainte-Chapelle housed the Christ’s Crown of Thorns. This church is as beautiful as that crown was painful. You'll be awestruck by the towering ceilings, the ceremonial staircase, and the epic stained glass windows - which tell the story of the history of the world. All this medieval beauty, in the heart of Paris's Palais de la Cité.

Located on the Île de la Cité, this impressive and intimate chapel, consecrated on 26 April 1248, is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Built in just 7 years, the Sainte-Chapelle remains an important building for both religious and political reasons. The medieval Palais de la Cité was the residence of the Kings of France until the 14th century and you can really feel the history here. Having Christ's Crown of Thorns, and other sacred relics, made powerful monarch Saint Louis the top dog of Western Christianity.

The panes in all 15 of those amazing windows depict 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments, all of which recount the story of the world, right up until the arrival of the relics in Paris. There's nothing as pretty as seeing the light stream through those 15-meter high windows onto the chapel floor on a sunny day.

The priority entrance was definitely worth it! For the same prices on the main website, we were about to get priority entrance through here and it was a very nice perk. The other line was probably about an 1/2 hour to hour wait. Was nervous buying through a third party but there was no issue whatsoever with the tickets.

Helpful tip: bought tickets for myself and my friend online while waiting in the line for a while. Took less than 1 minute. Immediately entered and didn't have to get cold on the street :) don't spend much time downstairs and go directly up. The view of the windows is breathtaking. But choose a sunny day for the visit, it's all about the light.

The place is magnificent.
You still have to queue to go thru security but after that it's straight thru. Worth doing.
