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.

most impressive array of stained glass windows I've ever seen. Logical thing to tag onto a trip to Notre Dame.

Small, intimate church close to Norte Dame. The stained glass windows are unmatched anywhere in Europe. Go on a sunny day and be amazed. Museum pass does not let u skip the line, only avoids small ticket line once inside.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Sainte-Chapelle. Stained glass is beautiful, and the history of building is impressive. On the other hand, the site is quite small, and the line to enter can be very long. Entry moves slow, as you need to go through security. It's worth seeing if you have time, but I would prioritize other sights, like Versailles, Notre Dame, and the Eiffel Tower ahead of Sainte-Chapelle.

So much stained glass that the roof seems to float without any support. This is a beautiful gem. You may have to wait in line a long time to get in. I recommend attending a night time concert when the church sparkles.

This is definitely a must see and I almost missed it. Give yourself enough time to wait in line and explore once inside before close! I always recommend doing a little research before you go to a place like this so you know the significance before you leave.
