Notre Dame is a mid-13C Gothic church. Its West front is most unusual. It has a 3-bayed porch topped by two galleries and three horizontal rows of "gargoyles". (They are not really gargoyles because they have no water diverting function). The original figures were removed in earlier centuries for fear of falling accidents. These were designed by V.-le-Duc in the 19C. (He had a "thing" about gargoyles). The sculpture of the portals was completely defaced during the Revolution. Above all this at the South end of the facade on its proper platform is Jacquemart (See Tip Under Customs).
