Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral France

Discover Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral

With its two majestic towers, pointed spire, soaring flying buttresses, stained glass windows and pipe organ, Notre-Dame remains one of the capital's most fascinating buildings.

It was constructed at the end of the 11th Century in the early Gothic style, restored in the 19th Century and was taken great care of over the following century and quickly became one of the most dearly held monuments in the hearts of the French.

Fantastical and often grotesque, chimeras, as opposed to gargoyles, have no purpose other than decoration.
