Notre Dame


Found in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, Notre Dame de Paris is one of the worlds most famous catherderals. At 800 years old this magnificent cathedral was built over the course of 200 years and its extraordinary structure has to be seen to be believed.


Whilst the French gothic culture is shown in its architecture, most significantly from the outside, inside the finest stain glass windows and artwork allow the history and faith of this creation to continue in existence. The famous bells still ring today.

 
I knew little about Notre Dame before visiting except what I had seen in Disney movies. It is surrounded by the River Seine, cobbled streets and an endless array of pigeons. If you are truly seeking history when visiting Paris, Notre Dame is its finest piece. Whilst combining history, culture and art it is also another piece of iconic France that makes the city a dream.
With love from Paris,
