The Notre Dame cathedral is one of the many highlights of Paris. It’s not only an impressive demonstration of French Gothic architecture, but it served as the setting for Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.
Although the western side of the cathedral is a sight to behold, I personally preferred the quieter grounds on the eastern side. The intricacy of the building’s design can really be appreciated from this angle, and the grounds themselves are wonderful to take a leisurely stroll.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have the patience to wait in line to explore the inside, but I’m hoping that one day I’ll be able to really experience this piece of history and give it the time it deserves.
Until next time, au revoir!
