Visit Sainte-Chapelle to see the world's largest collection of original stained glass windows and marvel at the 13th century Gothic architecture.

Sainte-Chapelle was an architectural and aesthetic marvel of its day and at one time the most important and holy place in the whole world.

Built during the second half of the 13th century by Louis IX, Saint Chapelle is a place of extraordinary religious symbolism. Residing within the Palais de la Cité itself, this chapel is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture; the roof appears to be supported by stained-glass so that this magical space feels like the inside of a jewel.

The building itself is a giant reliquary, built both to house the great relics of the king, including Christ’s crown of thorns and a piece of the true cross, and to prove worthy of owning these relics. At its heart rests a magnificent gold and silver shrine.

Made Paris fun and easy to navigate!! With only 4 days to spend in Paris, the Paris Pass was awesome. It really cut down on wasted time trying to navigate from one experience to the next. I think we were able to see much more with the Paris Pass. The Hop On Hop Off bus is a terrific idea as well.

Great investment! My friend and I were grateful to be able to skip the lines at all the museums. I think we did the best of the city in 2 days!
