Now you will think we are strange.. After seeing Grande Chapelle in same day, we didn´t get so impressed in Notre Dame.. But we might be alone with this opinion, I know.

Surely it´s big (huge!) and famous, and yes, it´s beautyful too but not as breath taking as Grande Chapelle was to us. It was so different, this was more the same as many other cathedrals we have seen.
What makes it different is maybe the statues up at the towers. Since I have this fobia of stairways, espesially the long ones, we missed them. There is no lift there as there is in most places.

But of course it is a must place to visit if you are in Paris, so you can´t skip it. If you wont go up either, it´s free. But there was a loooong line outside every time we passed by. But don´t worry, it goes quit fast. Didn´t get bored while looking at people and the Notre Dame outside. (Ithink it´s better outside than inside). Of course in a rainy day it would have been boring to wait out.
You all know how it looks out, so I´ll put more photos from inside.
