Fondest memory: <font color=red><b>Top 2 sights</font></b>
<hr>

My two favourite sights are everyone's favourite sights, in all fairness. Number 1 is the Notre-Dame Cathedral, a fascinatining Gothic building with tall spires, anornate façade, and a huge astronomical clock. It was meant to have two towers originally, but eventually one was left out: money matters, it seems. Somewhere near a shop opposite the main entrance - in the shop window i think - there's a particular angle from where you can catch the reflection of the cathedral with two towers, like in the original design.

My top sight number 2 is the Petite France quarter. It's a scenic corner along the canal, near a lock, and all surrounded by typical half-timbered houses with flowers on their balconies. there are also a few tiny bridges by the riverside and plenty of quaint cafés to sit down and enjoy life
