Notre Dame de Paris


This past year, I have visited many cathedrals during my travels. I always find these worship places quite impressive.
Notre Dame (Our Lady in french) is one of the icons of Paris of course, located not far from the Musee du Louvre. It is one of the most visited places in the city.
Its construction began in 1163 and was effectively completed by 1345 (a 182 years of construction). It is one of the first Gothic cathedrals.
