Informations

Notre-Dame de Paris, primitive Gothic building, was built from 1163 till 1345. Classified as “Historic Monument” and registered on the UNESCO world heritage, the Cathedral Notre-Dame is part of these symbolic buildings which makes Paris what it is: a first rowa capital, known worldwide for its architecture and its secular history. Nevertheless, this Gothic place of worship which took about 200 years to built on the Island of the City still didn’t have the fame and the prestige it holds now.
