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.

I loved it, we headed over to the general area early on the off chance we might beat the queues and were lucky that we did. The stained glass and sheer magnificence of Notre Dame is breathtaking. We didn't climb the tower tho' as the queues were too long.

This is also a cathedral you have to visit , we all seen it on the t.v. the (haunch back of Notre Dame ) but see it before your eyes is some thing else . the architecture is amazing.

By day you can go up to see from up next to the gargoyles the city view in a sunny day. By night there is always activities, young people doing crazy acrobatics, or yourng musicians playing etc, etc. Magic at all times

We stood in the rain for a half hour along with MANY other folks to slowly walk through this church. We're glad we did, but we came away knowing we'd have liked to spend a bit more time there. However, we're still glad we made the time for a brief visit.

If you use a wheelchair or scooter and would like to visit this cathedral you are in for a treat. You enter through the ramped exit doors. Just ask at the normal entry and you will be escorted to a barrier free route. The inside is well worth the visit.
