We enjoyed this. It is near Notre Dame and was a nice place to visit while we waited for our time to walk up the steps of Notre Dame. One in our group liked it better than Notre Dame.

Despite the price (10€), the beauty of the stained glass was worth it. What a beautiful space and spectacular example of architecture and artistry.

A small, hidden gem located close to Notre Dame and the Latin Quarter. Blink and you could miss it. This place was a real hidden beauty. Just do it.

Can't say anything other than this is a beautiful church and shouldn't be missed. Not too many steps to climb and descend.

Do not miss this unique and unbelievably beautiful chapel. The stained glass is just as captivating now as when it was created in the 1200s.

Sainte Chaelle is so beautiful and the perfect place to see a concert. They have one-hour classical concerts in many of the evenings. The acoustics and setting are exquisite and combine this with dinner nearby and a walk to see Notre Dame at night and...More

A must while in Paris. Try to go when the sun is shining as the stain glass must be seen with the sun shining on the chapelle. Also watch the video on the chapelle restoration.

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
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,
