Sainte-Chapelle

Near Notre Dame is Sainte-Chapelle, another gorgeous medieval Gothic chapel. It is close to Notre Dame, although located behind the portals of the Palais de Justice - which means extra security. It's a must-see in my book. The first time I went to it I toured the main room which was quite beautiful but was surprised that it had so little stained glass. Then I found the staircase to the upper story with a room with magnificent windows. A few years ago I was talking to someone who had been there and didn't know about the upper story. Unfortunately there was some scaffolding on one side of the upper chamber. (Can't they build these things to last?)
