Notre Dame Cathedral
Monument impressing, Notre Dame dominates all the religious architecture of the Ile-de-France. The works of construction begin in 1163 to end 200 years later (in 1345 exactly).
The exhaltation of romantic Victor Hugo, through his novel " Notre Dame de Paris", allowed the whole world to discover the cathedral.

What strikes generally the guests it is the facade consisted of majestic doors and stained glasses in the form of rosettes, but also these strange statues, among the saints, that we name collectively "gargoyles", and what gives the feeling that they are going to fly away.
To describe facades and the body of the monument would be too exhaustive: meeting on the Island of the Town and contemplate one of the most beautiful cathedrals of France.
