Notre Dame

5 (1 reviews)


Looming above Place du Parvis, this Gothic sanctuary is the symbolic heart of Paris and, for many, of France itself. Napoléon was crowned here, and kings and queens exchanged marriage vows before its altar. Begun in 1163, completed in 1345, badly damaged during the Revolution, and restored in the 19th century by Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, Notre-Dame may not be the country’s oldest or largest cathedral, but in beauty and architectural harmony it has few peers—as you can see by studying the front facade. Its ornate doors seem like hands joined in prayer, the sculpted kings above them form a noble procession, and the west rose window gleams with what seems like divine light.

    Great route. Too fast English delivery. So much traffic that the guide description first match to visiting places at time. Frequent buses and helpful employees. Over all time well spent.
