  Notre Dame cathedral at "Ile de la Cité" -island
by WanderingFinn
 
 

Notre Dame ("Our Lady" in English), is a very famous and gorgeous cathedral in Paris. It is located in an island, "Ile de la Cité". It is a Roman catholic cathedral; its architectural style is French gothic. The cathedral was built in 1100's-1200's.

The cathedral is more than 40 m wide and 60 m high.

Notre Dame has been lucky to witness many many famous events we now can read from our history books: Napoleon was crowned as emperor there, Joan of Arc was canonized.

Go, find out more yourself! It's worth it.
