Before we even visited the Notre Dame de Pris we first had a quick lunch at La Café de Bucherie which is sitauted at the other side of the river Seine, but gave us an amazing view at the cathedral. So we can be quite honest that we had a most enjoyable lunch indeed. After the lunch we walked our way up the the Notre Dame de Paris.

It's way too much to tell all what you have to see here in one tip at Virtual Tourist. But the west front of the cathedral is one of its most notable features, with its two 69-meter tall towers. The South Tower houses the cathedral's famous bell "Emmanuel." This bell weighs 13 tons and its clapper alone weighs 500 kilograms. The bell is Notre-Dame's oldest, having been recast in 1631. Besides that do visit the Galerie des Chimères that connects the two west towers and have a closer look at all the portals which all tell a different story. Finally it's worth to look at the stained glass windows, because they very beautiful and a good part of them date from the 13th century when the cathedral was constructed.
