About Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris

If you are wondering where Paris’ heart lies, then it is here. Also known as Our Lady of Paris, this cathedral is said to be one of the first Gothic cathedrals whose construction took place during the Gothic period. You can find gothic influences in its sculptures and the stained glasses of the cathedral’s windows. Its excellent interior decor is a marvelous example of medieval engineering. This might be the primary reason why it attracts more number of visitors as compared to the Eiffel Tower.

The most highlighted features of the cathedral are the three main entrances. Each of them is shaped differently and is accompanied with statues which were once colored to mark Bible lessons.

While there, you have to check out the towers of Notre Dame Cathedral, a UNESCO world heritage site. Apart from being architecturally stunning and historically significant, they also afford magnificent views of Paris and the River Seine. Extremely popular amongst tourists, you will encounter long lines to get in, but every minute spent waiting will feel worth the sight that awaits you after the steep climb.

If you must not miss out on this cathedral while planning a trip to Paris, else your trip is bound to be incomplete. Spend a stupendous vacation in paris with the best guide Paris Itinerary 10 Days

Notre Dame Cathedral Tour Reviews

  • It's a cool cathedral. Beware that it's very busy and you have to stand in a huge line before you can get in (the wait is somewhere between 10 and 15 minutes). It has some nice artwork on the inside even though I've seen better to be honest. They also offer a free guided tour if you're interested.

  • Well, if you seen one cathedral you've seen them all. That is certainly not true. This is one beautiful cathedral. A little strict on the women though. It may be time to rethink some legalism and theology.

  • Beautiful and empowering inside. Give generously when you exit. Pick a cool day to hike to top, very tightly packed area. Sign up for walking tour of island, so you do not have to stand in 1 to 2 hour line for climb to the top for views. Stuart. Los Angeles, .CA, USA

  • An amazing and peaceful place (even with the many hundreds of people sharing the experience). Go before lunch to beat the queue. Try to attend during mass to hear the choir resonate throughout this magical cathedral.

  • Stayed in Paris for 4 days and came here twice for hours. Both times it was packed at every turn. The structure itself is well preserved, VERY high ceilings, artifacts from its history, and many seats to seat and ponder. But for spirituality reasons, it gets 4 stars. It has no pure energy there. It has none at all. (Luxembourg has THE most peaceful and serene chapel I've been to in Europe). But if your going for sightseeing go early and you won't be disappointed.
