Why locals recommend it
It’s the most beautiful Gothic church in Europe, with sublime architecture and colors. The ceiling and stained-glass windows, in particular, are real works of art. I still have the same reaction every time I go: “Just wow!” For a few seconds I can’t take pictures. I just have to look around. Bring a wide-angle lens for interior photos, and arrive 20 minutes before the opening so that once the church opens, you can go directly upstairs. Usually, people stay on the first floor when they enter, but the view one floor up is amazing and being there first is priceless!

Probably the most beautiful Gothic church I've ever seen. The stained glass windows are exquisite! There is an entry fee, unlike Notre Dame. Known as Sainte-Chapelle.

Entrance is a bit pricey and there is often a line because its a small building with limited capacity and tight security (because its next to the courthouse of Paris) but its totally worth it…
