Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris

Paris, France
4.9 / 88
An outstanding example of Gothic architecture, the most visited cathedral of Paris. It began to be erected in the XII century on the site of the ancient pagan temple of Jupiter. By the middle of the XIV century, work was completed. During the French Revolution, Notre Dame fell into decay, but in 1804 Napoleon Bonaparte chose it as the place of his coronation, which partially restored the temple to its former importance. The last restoration was carried out in the 1920s.
Address:6 Parvis Notre Dame - Place Jean-Paul II, Paris

Still beautiful despite the barriers in place. Viewing platform was busy mid week but is off centre so you’ll get a better photo from the ground anyway! Good for a quick bit of admiration! Lots of local bars and cafes

12 years ago I was here for the first time and the last. I found the Notre Dam breathtaking. Now I was there after the devastating fire in 2019. It was shocking to see how much has been destroyed. In fact, only the facade is still standing.
I am so glad that I got the chance to see Notre Dame before the devastating fire in April 2019. Words cannot describe what an impressive work of art this church is both inside and out. I am so happy I have photos of the Spire that was completely dest.. Read more »

I saw it before the fire and it was pretty cool to see. Seeing it now all damaged is sad but there are interesting facts and information posted around the church as it undergoes repairs...still worth it to go by and check it out.
At first, I feel sorry for the fire occurred last year. As one of the people who've visited here before the accident, I hope the restoration ends successfully. Even though I have been here when I was about 12-13 years old, this structure gave a.. Read more »
