Highlights

  • Prepare to be dazzled by this Rayonnant Gothic period jewel in Paris, built in just 7 years

  • Witness the story of the the history of the world until the arrival of the relics in Paris, displayed in the huge windows

Description

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.

At the time we went priority wasn't needed but always glad to have it. Tiqets had tickets sent directly to email so it was very simple. The Saint Chapelle was definitely worth the visit. Absolutely gorgeous.

The interesting thing is that booking on Tiqets, is cheaper than on the Sainte Chapelle web site...? They charge you with 1 euros fee/tickets.

What am amazing venue. Don't be put off by the armed police - it is next door to the Palais de Justice. Beautiful decoration in the lower level then up to spectacular stained glass in the upper level.

Booked tickets on my phone having seen a very lengthy queue the day before. Couldn't have been easier and enabled us to make the most of our time in Paris 😊
