I think that this cathedral is Notre-Dame de Paris, also known as Notre-Dame Cathedral or simply Notre-Dame, is a historic Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris. I loved it !

I have tried to visit The towers of Notre Dame numerous times on various visits to Paris but have been defeated by the queues. This time I was determined to visit the towers so despite the cold weather we queued 30 minutes before the opening time and as a result we were able to be in the first group of... More

I was unable to get inside due to the extremely long line, which is also why this just for four stars. However sitting and looking at it from the outside it was still amazing. However very crowed.

This cathedral is absolutely amazing! Yes it costs a few Euros to enter, but the history of the world for many centuries is right here! If you're adventurous, climb the stairs and check out the view, and the gargoyles! It's now clear why the clergy (and the hunchback) were a little "off"-all the water storage containers are lined with lead!... More

I visited Notre-Dame Cathédral, Gothic art, who took about 200 years to be built; I was inside with friends of Paris and they explique us the portails topped by the famous Kings Gallerie composed of statues representing the Kings of Judas and Israel. The unique Rose-Window has 10 m in diameter, and is very beautiful. I had a fantastic view... More

Really, does anyone NOT go to Notre Dame? Be sure to head up and down both side aisles and view the area behind the alter. You'll get a sense of history more than anywhere else in Paris.

Even in cold and rainy January days this tourist magnet is attracting many visitors. The much better sight on the outer architecture is from the Seine riverside or from the wonderful park at the rear side of the cathedral. Most impressive are the devil faced gargoyles . Another attractive view is the Seine bridge at the rear side (sorry under... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighborhood Profile
Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
