Not far from Notre Dame is Sainte-Chapelle, another cozy gem of the Gothic style. It was commissioned by Louis IX in the 1240s to house holy relics, and built in just 7 years. Sainte-Chapelle contains stunning stained glass, ranging across 15 windows and 15 meters high.

Insider Tip

A unique way for you to experience Sainte-Chapelle is to attend a sunset concert. As you sit listening to glorious music, the setting sun casts its glow through the stained glass, creating a magnificent effect.
