Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is one of the world’s best-known cathedrals. It is an elaborate Gothic Catholic landmark that more than 13 million individuals visit each year, a historic treasure, and the Arch Diocese of Paris seat.
Notre-Dame de Paris (‘Our Lady of Paris’) or Notre Dame Cathedral, is a medieval Catholic cathedral, located on the Île de la Cité, in the 4th arrondissement of Paris.
It is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and it is regarded one of French Gothic architecture’s finest examples.
It was built over almost two centuries, from 1163 until 1345, when it was inaugurated.
It is one of the most important landmarks of Paris, known for distinguished style colorful rose windows, double bell towers and world’s biggest church organs.
Unfortunate events from April, 2019 that led to fire engulfing roof of the cathedral, have left significant damage to this unique landmark, but thanks to many donations from around the world and determined preservation and restoration efforts, it will hopefully be restored to its original state.
