Sainte-Chapelle in France

Stained Glass Interior

Beautiful cathedral A stunning example of late medieval architecture. Very well maintained and during the post-COVID visit, it was somewhat strange however still lovely all around.

Beautiful glass The Chapel is full of amazing glasswork and the only thing that takes away from this place is the entry fee, which is steep for just one room. .

Beautiful Very beautiful place with a lot of colorful stained glass! I went there as a EU student so I didn't pay but I would not pay 13 euros (normal price) to go inside because you see everything so quickly, it is really small.

The Sainte-Chapelle is the finest royal chapel to be built in France and features a truly exceptional collection of stained-glass windows.
