COVID19: reopening of the Sainte-Chapelle on June 23, 2020. Adapted hours: daily, 9am-5pm.

The Centre for National Monuments has decided to abolish the first free Sunday in November (Sunday 1 November) for monuments in the red zone. The entrance fee will therefore apply normally. The aim of this measure is to limit the number of visitors to monuments due to the health crisis. This measure will be renewable from December 2020 to March 2021 as long as the areas are in the red zone.

New for 2020: an application is available to read the stained glass windows in the Sainte-Chapelle. Download it from the “stores”.

Let yourself be dazzled by the 1,113 stained glass windows in this gem of Rayonnant Gothic architecture.
The Sainte-Chapelle is the finest royal chapel to be built in France and features a truly exceptional collection of stainedglass windows. It was built in the mid 13th century by Louis IX, at the heart of the royal residence, the Palais de la Cité, to house the relics of the Passion of Christ. Adorned with a unique collection of fifteen glass panels and a rose window forming a veritable wall of light, the Sainte-Chapelle gem of Rayonnant Gothic architecture.
