Understanding the towers of Notre-Dame Cathedral

• Construction and restoration. It is a quintessential Gothic cathedral, and building started in 1163 and lasted over 170 years. Until the building of Amiens Cathedral in the 13th century, it was the largest religious building in the West. Between 1847 and 1864, Lassus and Viollet-le-Duc restored part of the sculpted decorations, and even recomposed parts basing their work on old documents and works in the Cathedrals of Chartres, Reims and Amiens, the first time such an approach had been adopted.

• A place of national commemoration. The Te Deum mass has been sung here since 1447 to celebrate victory and a major funeral service preceded the burial of kings in the Cathedral Basilica of Saint-Denis.

Notre Dame is the most beautiful place in world. I am huge fan of Victor Hugo's novel and the cathedral it's self. I visited Paris for 2 weeks this past summer and had my Dream Vacation. I went and climbed Notre Dame 5 times, in full costume! I also went to the Victor Hugo sites, as well as the popular tourist attractions. I hope to someday work here!

C'est à voir ! Mais faut vraiment être en forme pour monter toutes ces marches... ou du moins prendre son temps.
