Book your ticket to the Sainte Chapelle and discover an incredible piece of Gothic architecture. Stained glass windows, impressive domes and one of the treasures of Christianity are waiting to be explored.
Sainte-Chapelle Skip the Line Ticket
When you walk through the doors of this temple, you'll feel like you've stepped back in time to the 13th century. Considered as one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in the world, this building will enable you to relive the days of Louis VI of France. Did you know that he ordered this incredible church to be built to house his Passion of Relics? It even housed Christ's Crown of Thorns – one of the most important relics in medieval Christendom- which was then moved to the nearby Notre-Dame Cathedral.
You'll walk through the chapel and admire the combination of red and blue columns, and don't forget to look up to appreciate the beautiful ceiling that stands 20 metres overhead. Of course, the stained glass windows are one of the most famous features; fifteen huge mid-13th-century windows fill the nave and apse, and a large rose window sits proudly in the western wall. This is a must-see in Paris, and you'll always spot something new every time you visit.
