Notre Dame de Paris, Paris: 652 reviews and 1,336 photos
The construction works to Notre-Dame Cathedral were started by Bishop Maurice Sully in 12C, but kept going in the period 1163-1345.
The beautiful interior impresses through its significant dimensions and height, still magnificent harmonized.
Remarkably beautiful are the windows, out of which the north rose, presenting scenes from the Old Testament, survived almost intact since 13C.
But Notre-Dame has also another meaning, because who doesn't know the story of Quasimodo, fascinated by the charms of the beautiful Esmeralda in Victor Hugo's novel "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame"?
In front of the Cathedral in the centre of Place du Parvis is a plaque marking the zero point from which all road distances in France are measured.
Address: Place du parvis de Notre Dame, 75004
