A gothic jewel in the heart of Paris
Welcome to Notre Dame Cathedral, a jewel of Gothic art and place of relics of sacred art.
Our guided tour will take place both externally and internally. Initially, from the outside, you will know the entire history of building this immense "stone book", from its initial plan to the restoration work done by the famous architect Viollet-le-Duc.
You will be able to admire and understand the meaning of the gargoyles and chimeras, the magnificent portals and the whole statuary that adorn this rich monument.
Internally you will know the details of a Gothic building and admire the works of art depicted on the form of sculptures and paintings. You will marvel at its magnificent stained glass windows and imposing organ.
In the treasure room I will show you the most important relics of the Passion of Christ preserved in Paris: the crown of thorns, a piece of the cross and a nail of passion. In the 12th century King Louis IX, the "Saint Louis", wanted to make Paris a holy city, like Rome at the time. So he decided to buy the relics of the Passion of Christ.
You can also visit the tower of Notre-Dame from where you have a wonderful view of the River Seine and Paris.
