Stunning and indescribably surrounds you in history...it was a cloudy day when we visited and the stained glass was heavenly...i can only imagine what glory the windows would have shown with the sun shining brightly through....it's a hidden gem!

The stained glass at Sainte-Chapelle on a sunny afternoon is absolutely breathtaking - do not miss! We found the security line to be fast moving and the crowds inside manageable.

The church is beautiful to visit but the terrific classical concert in the evening was a highlight of our trip to Paris! This small group of musicians presented a beautiful program showcasing Vivaldi and Handel. Try to schedule the concert online ahead of time. We took a tour of the church at 5 and had a small break before lining up for the concert.
