This cool cathedral with its amazing architecture took couple of hours from us to visit. Nothing more to say just go and visit it as soon as you reach Paris !!

“A must see, but be ready to push”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I think this is a must see, but the low buzz of people talking, and the crowds make it something you have to gear up to do.

“Must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Beautiful, humbling, spiritual and inspirational! Walk the gardens around the side of the Cathedral - many local artisans and musicians. It sets a very romantic experience and great for photos.

“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Just a pretty church... Not really much to see or do inside. We found this place to be not much more than a pretty picture opp.
