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!

La plus belle église de Paris, et parfois méconnue des touristes. Elle a protégé pendant des années la couronne d'épines du Christ et les vitraux sont parmi les plus beaux du gothique
