Many travelers miss an excellent site while in Paris. As thousands of tourist surround and enter Notre Dame Cathedral, less than two blocks away a majestic and historic facility...Sainte-Chapelle...greets onlookers with a splash of colors in the upper chapel. Built to house the Crown of Thorns, the church is best viewed late in the day. The stain glass, telling the story of the Bible, is best viewed late in the day. The sun give the stained glass, indeed the upper chapel, a rainbow of colors.
Purchase a book in the lower chapel if you do not carry a guide with you while traveling. Although the upper chapel provides information cards detailing the sections of stained glass, the books give you the storyline for each section.

Directions: Located on the Ile-de-la-Cite,near Notre Dame Cathedral.
