  • Absolutely wonderful. Impressive and majestic structure. Only the chapel would be worth the journey from Paris

  • We couldn't see much, as the whole chapel is being renovated and large parts are covered with tarpaulins.

  • Royal chapel with magnificent vaulted ceilings. Evolved with the palace. Fifth chapel of the palace, important for royal events like marriages etc. Integral part if the Royal life.
  • It is off limits to normal visitors and can only be visited as part of a guided tour. Normal visitors can only view it through a small door in one of the rooms on the upper floor. As expected, the entrance gets pretty crowded but it is worthwhile to wait for your turn and take a few photos. Unfortunately only the upper floor and the ceiling of the chapel can be viewed from here.
