PARIS RECOMMENDATION

 When a friend heard that I was going to be in Paris for a few days she recommended that I go and see LA SAINT CHAPELLE...........a gothic chapel on the Ile de la Cite in the very heart of Paris. So on Monday with the day to myself (husband in the office working)  I decided that was where I was going.
 And it was SO worth it. Even having to go through an airport style security check (coat, belt, scarf, bag through an Xray machine) and pay 8euros entrance it was still SO worth it!

 From the stained glass windows in the upper chapel which are gob smacking-ly beautiful.......it was a shame that one end of the chapel was closed for renovation but it was still stunning........

 to the painted columns and facades it was FANTASTIC!

So, my recommendation for if you are lucky enough to be in Paris is LA SAINT CHAPELLE.......I will be going again if I get chance!

that looks a great place so full of colour, used to hate being dragged around churches by my parents as a kid, but can understand the fascination now though :)
