What's not included

Entrance to the Conciergerie
  • Prepare to be dazzled by this Rayonnant Gothic period jewel in Paris, built in just 7 years
  • Walk around the finest royal chapel to be built in France and marvel at the surprisingly elegant 13th-century architecture
  • Witness the story of the history of the world until the arrival of the relics in Paris, displayed in the huge windows

Designed in the middle of the 13th century as a monumental reliquary, the beautiful Sainte-Chapelle housed the Christ’s Crown of Thorns. This church is as beautiful as that crown was painful. You'll be awestruck by the towering ceilings, the ceremonial staircase, and the epic stained glass windows - which tell the story of the history of the world. All this medieval beauty, in the heart of Paris's Palais de la Cité.

Located on the Île de la Cité, this impressive and intimate chapel, consecrated on 26 April 1248, is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Built in just 7 years, the Sainte-Chapelle remains an important building for both religious and political reasons. The medieval Palais de la Cité was the residence of the Kings of France until the 14th century and you can really feel the history here. Having Christ's Crown of Thorns, and other sacred relics, made powerful monarch Saint Louis the top dog of Western Christianity.

The panes in all 15 of those amazing windows depict 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments, all of which recount the story of the world, right up until the arrival of the relics in Paris. There's nothing as pretty as seeing the light stream through those 15-meter high windows onto the chapel floor on a sunny day.

Very easy. I had my ticket on my phone and got right in. Not sure I needed a concierge ticket but it gave me piece of mind.

The inside was stunning, however, they were out of stock on the English version of the info. guide so I don't feel I truly got everything out of my visit that I could have.

No issues at all getting my QR scanned by the gentlemen behind the ticket counter. No issues are always to be expected with Tiqet purchases.
