Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, France – a photo post

DSC00306

Last week I reviewed The Louvre.

This week’s post is about the Notre Dame Cathedral.

The impressive and intimidating Gothic architecture the Notre Dame cathedral is free to visit and see. The cathedral was constructed in the late 1100’s. This is another popular architectural photography subject, and a great destination for traditional architecture lovers.

I highly recommend coming here for the architecture, it’s a great place to take photographs or to have a sit outside by the cathedral. The cathedral itself is free to enter, however there is a small fee of a few euros to climb the tower. There are long lines and large crowds during peak times.

The architectural decor is beautifully detailed and the scale is magnificent. Just look at the scale of the doors and the archways, not to mention the windows.
