Owner description: This famous cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture on which construction began in the 12th century, stands on the Île de la Cité and is the symbolic heart of the city.

Everyone has heard of Notre Dame Cathedral....so it's a must see. Even if you aren't a history buff, you can't should get as much info on the construction, background of the cathedral, etc., because it's like no other. My husband and I decided to attend 8:30 Mass, which was an amazing experience. Nothing different, but just to say you did that is waaaay cool!

It is kind of rusty and old but that is what you would expect from a building so old. The art inside the churches in the form of vitrals, sculptures, carved wood, furniture and chandeliers, as well are nice to see.

The cathedral was more moving than St Peters Basilica in Rome. More solace in feeling, maybe due to not being as busy or as big. Very impressive in size, architecture and obviously history. We cruised past it the day before on a river cruise and it was an impressive site but when you walked into it, it was amazing. Well worth the visit when in Paris.

This old girl looks pretty amazing. It is too crowded for my taste, but it is worth seeing. The saints, the gargoyles, the history, the beauty. GO!!!
