Notre-Dame de Paris


Notre-Dame de Paris (French for Our Lady of Paris), is not the largest Gothic Catholic cathedral in France, but its one of the most remarkable masterpiece of the Gothic period. After its completion, it was the largest cathedral of the western world. This gothic masterpiece is located on the Île de la Cité, on the banks of Seine river.

Notre Dame de Paris is considered as one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in France and in Europe. It was restored and saved from destruction by Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, one of France's most famous architects. The name Notre Dame means "Our Lady" in French, and is frequently used in the names of Catholic church buildings in Francophone countries. Notre Dame de Paris was one of the first Gothic cathedrals, and its construction spanned the Gothic period.

Its sculptures and stained glass show the heavy influence of naturalism, unlike that of earlier Romanesque architecture. The cathedral suffered desecration during the radical phase of the French Revolution in the 1790s.

During the 19th century, an extensive restoration project was completed, returning the cathedral to its previous state.
