What people are saying:

The Atonement Chapel is most famous for burying the angry people of Paris and the Queen of Grief here at the same time. As far as the church is concerned, it really cannot be compared with other cathedrals, and the location is relatively biased. There are not many people visiting, unless you are particularly interested, you don’t have to come here specifically

    Very small, very quiet, very historical

    Chapelle Expiatoire dates to 1816 by King Charles X. It sits somewhat hidden on a small Paris street. The architecture is beautiful and the chapel extremely well maintained. Suggest studying the histo...

    Peaceful and quiet; moving, if you know the history

    We know all the history and just noticed this place had been missed on multiple visits to Paris. I suggest you check it out. The building is interesting, and the sculptures (one each of Marie Antoinet...

    Interesting to see if you are in the area and if you stay a few days in Paris

    It was interesting to see. I was in the area. But I think the entrance price is too high, because in the end, we don't see so much. If you don't stay very long in Paris, I don't recommend to spend tim...
