"Light in the upper room..." Sainte-Chapelle Tip by davequ
Sainte-Chapelle, Paris: 145 reviews and 357 photos
Here is a simple digital altar close-up shot I took on a mildly sunny day in the early afternoon of Oct. '03.
Lower chapel is muted, darker; upper chapel is a symphony of light.
Consciergerie and Marie Antoinette's prison cell is right next door.
I recommend buying the pass for both.
Check for strikes. It was closed the first time I went to Paris. But 2 years later, it was open and glorious.
