"Notre Dame Cathedral is a stunning example of French Gothic architecture, known for its artistic beauty and historical importance to the city. . Throughout its history, Notre Dame has witnessed some of France's most important events, from the coronation of kings to the French Revolution.

"I think this one needs no introduction, the cathedral of Paris is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, a must-visit landmark in the heart of the city. With its stunning stained glass windows, intricate sculptures, and breathtaking views from the towers, it's a testament to centuries of history and artistry. Unfortunately it's still being repaired from the fires of 2019. It should open it's doors to the public in December 2024. "
