Construction work began in 1160 and was largely completed in 1260, through renovations and modifications occurred often over the following centuries. It is a stunning example of French Gothic architecture and particularly well-known for its many gargoyles and flying buttresses. The cathedral’s stained glasses windows date from the 13th century, making them essentially priceless. Notre-Dame has played an important role throughout French history. In 1802, Napoleon Bonaparte was crowned Emperor of France here. Located on the Ile de la Cite in the Sine River, Notre-Dame is a true masterpiece.

    I had the chance to visit Notre Dame sadly after the fire ruined the back part of the cathedral, because it was made of wood, so it was easily caught on fire. But luckily, the front part still looks very beautiful, and if you just stay at the front parr, you couldnt tell that something happened before. The Seine river beside this cathedral makes it look even more pretty. I didnt have the chance to go inside because it was closed for renovation at that time.

    I was lucky enough to have the chance to visit this beautiful Cathedral in Paris before the tragic fire destroyed part of the structure. It is indeed a beautiful church with so many splendid artifacts inside like colored tainted glasses, sculptures and wall paintings. And there was a powerful and poignant air of Christianity inside the Cathedral when I paid my visit there. It is definitely a place of attraction one must visit in one's life time and I hope it can be repaired and renovated as soon as possible so that it will be restored to become one of the most impressive places of architecture in human history.

    Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is a church building located in the centre of Paris, France, on the West Bank of the Seine River. It is a Gothic Christian church. Notre Dame was built between 1163 and 1250. The whole church was completed in 1345 and lasted for more than 180 years. Notre Dame de Paris is a typical Gothic church. It is constructed entirely of stone, which is characterized by high-rise, magnificent, the whole building is solemn and harmonious. Notre Dame de Paris is the symbol of ancient Paris. Its position and historical value are incomparable. It is one of the most brilliant buildings in history. The church is famous for its Gothic architectural style, sculpture and painting art in altars, corridors, doors and windows, and a large number of art treasures from the 13th to 17th centuries hidden in the church. The famous French writer Victor Hugo's poetic depiction of Notre Dame in the novel Notre Dame de Paris is even more desirable. Nowadays, Notre Dame still holds religious activities. This is almost a must-have place for visitors to Paris. Visiting the church is free. If you want to go to the Bell Tower, you need to buy tickets on the north side of the church. The Bell Tower offers a panoramic view of Paris. It's very convenient to come here by subway or bus.

    Notre Dame de Paris is famous for Notre Dame de Paris. Notre Dame is situated near the Seine River. Many visitors visit Notre Dame de Paris. Driving to Notre Dame is also the result of car parking. The streets on both sides of Notre Dame must have authentic catering shops. There are also many local people in the square in front of Notre Dame who can't bring liquid things into Notre Dame under the trees. The security is relatively strict. People need to limit the flow of people and queue up to enter. While queuing up, you can take photos with Notre Dame. Ha-ha.

    The original French name of Notre Dame is the first Christian church built at this address. The site of Notre Dame has a tortuous history. In the 4th century, it was a Christian church to worship St. Stephen. In the 6th century, it became a Roman church. Twelve cornerstones of the church were taken from the site of the original Roman temple. It is also said that the cathedral was further rebuilt in 528 by Childebert I of the M&3; rovingiens Dynasty on the basis of pre-existing churches. By the time of Louis VII of the 12th century, the original Roman church had been destroyed. In 1160, Maurice de Sully, who was elected bishop of Paris, decided to build a magnificent church in the area comparable to the Cathedral of St. Etienne. There are also historical records showing that there were two churches here, one is St. Tanny's Cathedral, the other is the Church of the Virgin Mary. As early as the 10th century, St. Tanny Cathedral has become the religious center of Paris or France as a whole. However, because of this importance, people began to find that the original St. Stephen's Church was not in line with its heavy responsibilities, and the original church had become old over time, and began to think about rebuilding the church. Notre Dame de Paris was founded in 1163 and in 1345. The church used to be a meeting place for craftsmen and educational organizations all over Europe. Because of these historical origins, the most famous Sorbonne University in Paris is situated here. During the French Revolution at the end of the 18th century, most of the church's treasures were destroyed or plundered. Displaced sculptures and decapitated statues could be seen everywhere. The only bell survived the melting down, and Notre Dame was in a thousand holes. Later, the church was converted into a sanctuary of reason, and later into a wine warehouse. It was not until Napoleon came to power in 1804 that it was used as a religion. Victor Hugo, a famous French writer, once described Notre Dame most poetically in his novel Notre Dame de Paris. The novel was written in the Romantic era in French literary history. After the publication of the book in 1831, there was a great response. Many people hoped to build the ruined Notre Dame Cathedral and initiate a fund-raising program. It also aroused the attention of the government authorities at that time to the tragic situation of Notre Dame's building. Starting in 1844, the restoration project was presided over by historian and architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc, reproducing the long-lost glory of Notre Dame. In 1845, Jean-Baptiste-Antoine Lassus, 1

    I borrowed Hugo's masterpiece in school. There are a lot of words about architecture in it. I'm ashamed I haven't finished reading it. But when I was very young, I saw movies on black-and-white television, and Cassimodo blurted out. It's a pity that I didn't get to the Bell Tower because I was late. It takes a long queue to get into the hall without buying tickets, and the queue goes very fast. For the first time I saw the priest lead the man into the confession room. I think the local devout believers must not like so many tourists. As a functioning religious place, balancing the relationship with tourism is a test. Next time you must come earlier and buy tickets to the Bell Tower.

    Notre Dame de Paris is a must for tourists to visit Paris. When I read the biography of Napoleon as a child, I learned that Napoleon's crowning ceremony was held in Notre Dame in Paris. He was shocked that Napoleon had snatched the crown from the Pope and put it on himself. He was not impressed by Notre Dame in Paris. After watching the film Notre Dame de Paris and reading Hugo's novel of the same name, I had the idea that I must see Notre Dame de Paris when I visited Paris.

    Notre Dame de Paris is indeed a great building, the interior does not say that the golden wall looks brilliant, there are ceremonies inside, after entering there has a solemn and solemn feeling! After coming out, I walked around Notre Dame de Paris and saw a very different Notre Dame de Paris. From every angle, I found its unique side. Standing at the back and side, you were shocked by the front. The bridge behind it is said to be the love bridge of France. There are many halls built on the riverside, and they don't open in the evening. My French colleague said that they would open in the morning. I was lucky to see an open door. All the small oil paintings are sold in it. The prices are in several euros and the sizes are different. When I turn to the front of Notre Dame in Paris, I find Paris shining like gold in the sunshine. It's beautiful! Suddenly, without the sun, there would be no shining light, and the sunshine would shine once it appeared! ____________ It's worth going!

    Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is a church building located in the centre of Paris, France, on the island of Sidi. It is also the Cathedral of the Catholic Paris diocese. Notre Dame was built between 1163 and 1250. It belongs to Gothic architecture. It is one of the most representative Gothic churches in France. The church was founded in 1163. It was decided by the Archbishop of Paris, Maurice de Sully. The whole church was completed in 1345 and lasted more than 180 years. Victor Hugo, a famous French writer, once wrote the most poetic description of Notre Dame in his novel Notre Dame de Paris. I believe many people, like me, know about this building through the film Notre Dame de Paris. When I came to Paris, of course I wanted to see it, but there was no chance. It was a pity that I saw it when I was passing by the Seine River cruise ship.

    Notre Dame de Paris, a place I've longed for for a long time, originated from the film Notre Dame de Paris, which I saw in my youth. I was very impressed. In fact, I was impressed by the gloomy feeling, the weirdness of the bell tower, the bell sounding in the night of lightning, thunder and thunder, and the monster looming from time to time on the top of the bell tower. When I stand in front of it, it's so special. Inside and outside are fine, each angle is different scenery. Take it easy on yourself.
