Owner description: This famous cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture on which construction began in the 12th century, stands on the Île de la Cité and is the symbolic heart of the city.
Reviewed 1 February 2013

This is not a 1-hour tour venue. Be sure to give yourself at least a 1/2 day to enjoy all that this amazing cathedral has to offer. Truly amazing and worth every penny! Where comfortable shoes and take a sweater as it can be a bit cool inside.

We had a good look around one afternoon and then attended a concert that evening. Sadly some old priest gave a 50 minute talk in French before the concert. Pretty grim.

The cathedral is very impressive. Even though the weather is not too nice at this time of the year (extremely windy on the top of the towers), it is majestic and beautiful. Not too crowded either - most of the people were waiting outside to see the new bell get delivered. All in all, we loved pretty much every single thing about it. And I have to say, I am not exactly religious.

Amazing structure, was lucky as it was January, very cold, but no Ques!
The inside is huge, must observe the holiness of the place, no flash on camera, no hats, and quite.

Must see on a Paris itenrary!!

After a big trip visiting churches in europe I was relived to know that this one was free to enter. (Jesus must be in heavy debt because most churches charge you something).
Go on a sunday to mass, the play the organ!!
