The Cathedral of Notre-Dame was the first historical cathedral that I had ever seen. My initial thoughts were that we could zip through quickly and then see something good. Once we arrived and saw how beautiful it was, I didn't want to leave until I explored every inch.

The architecture of the cathedral is unlike anything I had ever seen. From the huge wooden doors to the flying buttresses - I was amazed. Inside was even more incredible. Walking through the cathedral, you could almost feel all the people who had passed through the doors over the ages.

We were so taken by Notre-Dame that we stayed to take part in the mass. It was truly inspiring to have people from all over the world, who spoke many different languages, come together and be as one for the hour that mass took place.
