Notre Dame de Paris is well-known for the Victor Hugo character, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. But it's an historical cathedral that was conceived in the 12th century by Bishop Maurice de Sully.

It has been the sight of various events such as Napoleon's coronation and it even fell into disrepair until the 19th century when Viollet le Duc restored it.

One of the best features of the cathedral apart from all the stained glass and artifacts inside, is the steep climb up the towers to get a spectacular view of Paris and to get upclose to your new friends the gargoyles.
