Notre-Dame cathedral

The fascinating Notre Dame Cathedral, built between the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, is perhaps the most famous Gothic church in the world. With precious forms rosettes and melodious, this cathedral is one of the finest and most visited monuments in Paris. You will also have the chance to relive the fantastic story of the Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo Book which became famous thanks to the animated cartoon version by Disney.

Cathédrale Notre-Dame

L'un des symboles les plus durables de Paris: Notre-Dame de Paris, également connue sous le nom de Notre Dame, est une cathédrale catholique romaine située sur la moitié orientale de l'île de la Cité. Elle est largement considérée comme l'un des plus beaux exemples de l'architecture gothique française en France et en Europe.

Commencée en 1163 et terminée en 1345, cette cathédrale est un spectacle avec ses arcs-boutants, ses portails entourés de sculptures et ses nombreuses gargouilles qui ornent le toit.

Notre Dame

The Notre Dame, Paris, is one of the most striking Gothic cathedrals in the world.

The construction of this cathedral began in 1163, with Pope Alexander III laying down its foundation stone; it was completed in 1345. It is an important historical and religious site, sacred to the Celts, Romans and Christians alike. It is also the site of the coronation of Napoleon.

The entire structure, from the windows to the façade, is a marvel to view. Some of the major attractions are the sculpture of Adam and Eve at the entrance, the statue of Saint Joan of Arc and the rose windows. Stories from the Bible are painted on the portals, ceilings, walls and stained glasses of the cathedral. A climb up to the towers ensures a breathtaking view of Paris.

Victor Hugo’s famous work of fiction, the ‘Hunchback of Notre Dame’, is based on this cathedral.
