Notre Dame

28 12 2011

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris (Our Lady of Paris) is one of the best known landmarks in Paris. Located on Île de la Cité in the Seine, it is easily accessed by foot, metro or tour bus. Built between 1163 and 1250, Notre Dame has many Gothic architectural features, stunning stained glass windows and historic artworks. Notre Dame is visited by over 13 million tousists each year, but is also an active Catholic Church. Despite this, they allow cameras inside the cathedral. There is no charge for access to the main part of the cathedral (although there are of course souvenirs for sale and offering boxes), and there is a small charge to climb the tower and access the roof area, including the bell. You have probably seen many photos of Notre Dame – hopefully some of these views are a little different to the ones you are familiar with.

The series of photos runs: view from the frnt courtyard, views inside the cathedral, views of the southern side of the cathedral (queuing to get into the tower) views inside the tower and from the roof of the cathedral, views of the northern side from a boat on the Seine.

Enjoy!
