Notre Dame de Paris is also situated in the 4th arrondissement (administrative districts) of Paris, the capital city of France. Situated on the Right Bank of the River Seine, it is known for its little streets, cafés, and shops but is regarded as expensive. It is desirable for those (like us) insisting on old buildings and multi-cultural exposure. It has a lot to offer like the Paris City Hall, the Renaissance square of Place des Vosges, the overtly modern Pompidou Centre, but most of all it offers the Notre Dame de Paris.

The Notre Dame de Paris (Our Lady of Paris) is trully a beautiful cathedral. The building begun in 1163 and was mostly completed by 1250. Most people consider the Notre Dame de Paris as an important example of French Gothic architecture, sculpture and stained glass. We read that the Notre Dame de Paris is the most popular monument in Paris and in fact in all of France, beating even the Eiffel Tower with 13 million visitors each year. But the famous cathedral is also an active Catholic church, a place of pilgrimage, and the focal point for Catholicism in France. We noticed that religious events of national significance still take place here.
