Visit two of the most beautiful monuments in Paris on the same day and save money with this ticket to the Sainte-Chapelle and the Conciergerie.
Sainte-Chapelle & Conciergerie Skip the Line Ticket
Located on the iconic Île de la Cité, together with the Notre Dame, the Conciergerie and the Sainte-Chapelle are the key architectural gems in this part of the city. This ticket will give you entry to both monuments on the same day; saving you time and money!
Also known as the "royal chapel of the Île de la Cité", the Sainte-Chapelle is a beautiful Gothic church listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inside you'll see an extraordinary set of polychrome stained glass windows, considered to be the most beautiful in Paris. Even on cloudy days, the light floods in through the beautiful stained glass windows. This is why some art historians popularly call it "the little glass box" of the French capital.
The Sainte-Chapelle also houses an outstanding collection of sacred art on the history of the relics of the Passion and other episodes such as the life of Saint John the Baptist or Genesis.

This Gothic palace was once home to the French monarchy during the Middle Ages.
