Notre Dame Paris
Visit the striking Notre Dame cathedral and be captivated by its dominating presence and splendid artistry. Standing majestically at the historical and religious centre of Paris, Notre Dame is one of the most significant examples of French Gothic architecture.
Construction of Notre Dame began in 1163 by Bishop Maurice De Sully and took over 180 years to complete. The following centuries saw the cathedral undergo various expansions, destruction during the French Revolution and subsequent restoration projects.
Walk from your central hotel in Paris to the Île de la Cité, a small island in the fourth arrondissement, and discover beautiful Notre Dame.
The splendour of Paris’s Notre Dame
As you approach the western façade of the famous Roman Catholic cathedral, the detailed craftsmanship of its adorning features will spellbind you. Wonder at Notre Dame’s glorious rose window, the 28 statues of the gallery of kings, the grand North and South Towers and the elaborately decorated portals.
Inside, climb the 387 steps of the South Tower and be rewarded with a close inspection of Notre Dame’s infamous 17th-century, 13-tonne bell. Take in sweeping views of Paris and the River Seine beside 19th-century gargoyles keeping watch over the city.
Attend a Notre Dame night show where opera, projected images and illumination create a truly moving atmosphere, or dig deeper into the cathedral's history by visiting Notre Dame’s archaeological crypt.
