Aeroport de Paris-Le Bourget
Sainte-Chapelle was an architectural and aesthetic marvel of its day and at one time the most important and holy place in the whole world. Built during the second half of the 13th century by Louis IX, Saint Chapelle is a place of extraordinary religious symbolism. Residing within the Palais de la Cité itself, this chapel is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture; the roof appears to be supported by stained-glass so that this magical space feels like the inside of a jewel.
The building itself is a giant reliquary, built both to house the great relics of the king, including Christ’s crown of thorns and a piece of the true cross, and to prove worthy of owning these relics. At its heart rests a magnificent gold and silver shrine. Sainte-Chapelle is a popular historic building in Paris full, once a private riyal sanctum it remains an unmissable and unmistakable wonder of France and the medieval world.

Towers of Notre Dame Cathedral
The construction of the Gothic Notre Dame Cathedral, undertaken at the initiative of Maurice de Sully, began about 1160 and amazingly was completed within 40 years. Around 1250, Jean de Chelles built the north arm and began work on the south arm, which was completed by Jean de Montreuil.
From the middle of the 13th century to the beginning of the 14th century, the chapels of Notre Dame Paris were constructed between the buttresses of the nave. The buttresses next to the chevet were built by Pierre de Montreuil and are particularly fine. The Towers of Notre Dame are amongst the great delights of the cathedral and, provided you have the energy for the ascent, they provide a spectacular view over central Paris. The Towers ascend to 422 steps (226 feet) above ground level.
Notre Dame Paris is justly famous throughout the world. Almost intimidating in its gothic splendor, this is the work of hundreds of craftsmen and centuries of labour- an astonishing testament to cooperative civilisation.

Archaeological Crypt of Notre-Dame
Beneath the streets of central Paris, the Crypte Archéologique is a huge and haunting space extending 80m under the shadow of Notre Dame Cathedral and an intriguing attraction for any visit to Paris. The Crypte Archéologique de Notre-Dame is an atmospheric time capsule which explores the lives and artifacts of the tribes and civilizations that dwelt in Paris long ago. Here are located the telling remains of a house from Lutèce, the precursor to Paris. There are numerous Gallo-Roman artifacts, which provide a fascinating insight into the lives of the mighty Roman Empire and how they lived in Paris.
This fascinating attraction includes a splendidly recreated settlement of the Parisii, the Celtic tribe that first settled on the site of Paris 2000 years ago and from whom the city takes its name. It is a powerful reminder that the city of Paris has stood for thousands of years in the centre of a great cultural storm, and that countless people have fought and died to make Paris their home. You can experience the eerie Crypte Archéologique de Notre-Dame for Free with the Paris Pass. Not far from the Crypte you will find the famous Towers of Notre Dame, Saint-Chapelle and Centre Pompidou – National Museum of Modern Art.
