Cathedral de Notre-Dame is a Roman Catholic church on the Île de la Cité in Paris, known for its architecture. Take a trip to the Cathedral's treasury to appreciate liturgical objects made of gold on display, an insight into the workmanship of the 17th & 18th century. An ascent to the Cathedral towers will reward you with a breath-taking view of the city.
Construction of this Cathedral was begun in the 1100s and completed in 1345. However restoration was completed only in the 19th century after it was damaged during the Revolution. Look out for some great architecture particularly on the exterior and the stained glass work in the interior. Chargeable audio guides are available to give you an interesting backdrop. For instance, Napoleon was crowned here. On April 15, 2019, the Cathedral caught fire due to some rennovation project mishap. The overall structure of the cathedral was preserved, only causing damage to the roof and spire.
