  Notre Dame, Paris
by Sharrie

Favorite thing: Walk over to the North transept facade which was designed by Jean de Chelles & reflects the 2nd style of Parisian Gothic. On the portal pillar is a statue of the Virgin - the only original work preserved here.

If you've more time, wander to the South transept facade where the portal is consecrated to St. Etienne, the patron saint of the Merovingian structure that formerly stood on the site. Sculptured figures recount his life & martyrdom.
