Wanderlust Wednesday: Sainte-Chapelle

Wanderlust Wednesday: Sainte-Chapelle

Located in central Paris fairly close to the Notre Dame, the Sainte-Chapelle is a stunning monument which was built in 1248 to house precious Christian relics. Across 15 windows, each 15 metres high, beautiful stained glass tells a story of the history of the World.

Last summer me and my friend visited various popular tourist spots in Paris, and seeing as this was on our route we thought we’d take a look. Despite the poor reviews online, I was still keen to visit the Sainte-Chapelle and admire its incredible architecture.

Many people have complained about long queues upon entry which is understandable for any popular tourist attraction, however we managed to get inside in under ten minutes. The stained glass and detail of this building is impressive however it was much smaller than I had imagined and I was shocked at the ticket price of €13.50, especially considering there are many museums, cathedrals, and galleries in London that you can enjoy for free.

All in all this historic place is stunning and offers some great photo opportunities, but in my opinion it shouldn’t cost more than €5 to see!
