The timeless beauty of the Gothic Catholic cathedral located on the Ile de la Cité in the middle of the Seine River will astound you. Its construction started in the 12th century and it was not completed until 300 years later.
Climb 402 steps inside one of its two much photographed and filmed towers to get a spectacular view of Paris. To visit the towers, you will go through the upper parts of the western cathedral’s façade, which dates from the 13th century.
On the way up, check out the grotesque gargoyles, and, higher up, the belfry, the famous church bells, and especially Emmanuel, the giant bell. The entrance to the towers is on the outside of the cathedral, but make time to visit the interior in order to see the spectacular pieces of art and breathtaking stained glass.
