What people say

"One of the finest royal chapels built in France, The Holy Chapel has a truly remarkable collection of stained glass. It was built by Louis IX in the mid-13th century on the Palais de la Cité to house the relics of Christ's Passion. Adorned with a unique collection of 15 glass panels and rose windows that form a veritable wall of light, the Sainte-Chapelle is a jewel of Gothic architecture.

"It is a Gothic style church built by order of King Louis IX, to house the relics of Christ, composed of the Crown of Thorns and a piece of the Holy Cross. Even if it cannot be compared to Notre Dame, the Sainte Chapelle is one of the masterpieces of Gothic architecture with extraordinary stained glass windows, which undoubtedly do not leave indifferent. 👣How to get there: reachable on foot from Notre Dame (500m,6min). Metro stop: Cité, line 4. 🎟️Ticket cost:full price 11,50€-free entry for minors and under 26 EU citizens or with the Paris Museum Pass."
"They also hold concerts here, if you're lucky enough to catch one which coincides with your trip. We were lucky enough to see a performance of Vivaldi's Four Seasons one evening before Christmas. It was a special evening though marred somewhat by the bitter cold temperatures outside which seemed to make their way inside and freeze us to our bones on the hard cathedral seats. But a takeaway mulled wine from a street-side stall soon sorted us out. "
