In the Center of Paris !


notre-dame CathEdral OF Paris

Le Twickenham us very near the Cité à Paris, where you can visit the towers of Notre-Dame Cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece on the UNESCO World Heritage List that
was celebrated by Victor Hugo's novel published in 1831.
It is a quintessential Gothic cathedral, and building started in 1163 and lasted over 170 years. Until the building of Amiens Cathedral in the 13th century, it was the largest religious building in the West. Between 1847 and 1864, Lassus and Viollet-le-Duc restored part of the sculpted decorations, and even recomposed parts basing their work on old documents and works in the Cathedrals of Chartres, Reims and Amiens, the first time such an approach had been adopted.
The Te Deum mass has been sung here since 1447 to celebrate victory and a major funeral service preceded the burial of kings in the Cathedral Basilica of Saint-Denis.
