Built between 1163 and 1245, Notre-Dame Cathedral is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Île de la Cité and one of the finest examples of the French gothic architecture.

The cathedral has two towers that visitors can climb to the top. Apart from the impressive views of Paris that may be observed from there, you can visit the bell tower (where the Hunchback of Notre Dame lived) and see the cathedral’s famous gargoyles.
