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.

So we go in and I am confused because I am not terribly impressed. There was a gift shop sort of stand off to the side and at the end some old broken relics to look at but it was very small and not super...More

Be sure you buy combined ticket for Sainte-Chapelle and Conciergerie , Once Sainte-Chapelle visit is done just walk out from exit and just after that you can enter Conciergerie even this is very best place to know details about french revolution.

I agree with some of the previous reviewers; it's OK. The stain glasses are beautiful but the church looks run down. And it's not a functioning church now (I asked one of the ushers). The line to enter was about 20 mins' wait to go...More

Very beautiful. It's not that big, so 3 hours is enough time to properly experience Sainte-Chapelle. Would definitely recommend going.

We didn’t have to pay any entrance fees since it opens freely for EU students under 25. The place amazed us with the colorful glass and how detailed they are. It is a recommended place to visit once you are in Paris.

If you love stained glass this is your place. It’s a quick visit but the second floor has the biggest and prettiest windows.

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

Yes concerts are held upstairs. Tours end at 6:00 and they set up chairs and they opened the doors again around 7:15.
