Notre Dame

Cathedral Paris, France

The most famous gothic cathedral in the world Notre Dame

Paris Notre Dame is one of the most famous Gothic cathedrals in the world, as well as one of the oldest for its erection during the first gothic period.

Notre-Dame is a Cathedral dedicated to the Virgin Mary. This magnificent sacred building is located in the Ile de la Cité of Paris, surrounded by the Seine. In 1163, Maurice de Sully, the bishop of Paris, ordered the construction of this cathedral, but it was only completed in 1345. This mysterious church contains five naves and 37 chapels; the light enters through the 113 beautiful windows giving its interior a charming atmosphere. During the French history, Notre Dame has been a prestigious stage for the most critical events in the Nation, such as the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte and the beatification of Joan of Arc. Climbing the 402 steps of the cathedral towers, you can admire the architecture, the gothic arches, the famous gargoyles and the sculptures of the chimera gallery; once arrived at the top, you will be amazed by the panorama around you.
