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.

Best experience ever at the best price I had a wonderful experience with the Paris Pass. I visited all the places that I wanted. I skip all the lines and the price was very reasonable. I wll highly recommend the Paris Pass to any traveler. The hop in and hop off bus was wonderful too. I also used the Paris train and all of these atractions were included in the Paris Pass.

Value for money. The Paris pass was great and we were able to visit many museums and attractions at a discount or free. We were also able to travel on the Metro for free! So go ahead and buy one and enjoy your Paris experience.
