La Sainte-Chapelle was designed by Pierre de Montereau for King Louis IX (Saint Louis), and consecrated in 1248. This stands as one of the finest, most beautiful examples of Gothic architecture. The stained-glass windows are so incredible, they don't seem quite real. This is the perfect place to visit before or after Notre Dame.

Address: Boulevard du Palais
Directions: Sainte-Chapelle is inside the Palais of Justice on L'Ile de la Cité--a few minutes walk from Notre Dame. Métro : Cité, Staint-Michel, or Châtelet. RER: Chatelet -Les-Halles, Saint-Michel.
