Île de la Cité, Paris: 33 reviews and 84 photos
Ile de la Cite is the oldest part of Paris, the heart of the city and also the main attraction due to the remarkable monuments it hosts: La Cathedrale Notre-Dame du Paris, Sainte-Chapelle, Conciergerie and Palais de Justice.
The initial name Lutetia, taken around 200BC when it was discovered, was changed in 506 when Cite became Clovis's capital.
The most important work took place under Louis-Philippe and Napoleon III when the Law Courts were doubled, Place du Parvis in front of Notre-Dame was quadrupled and Boulevard du Palais became 10 times wider than before.
