I miss walking past this sight in its full glory on the way back to my parents house when i am back in France. Hopefully not too long till it has been fully restored and we can enjoy one of our best sights.

Visited a year before the fire

Rated:

Visited a year before the fire. It is one of the main landmarks of the city and had such beautiful architecture and sculptures. Hopefully they can restore it to how it was.

History and architecture

Rated:

The architecture of this cathedral is worth the visit alone. Attended the tour and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions.

Interesting

Rated:

Very interesting building with plenty of history. We visited during the day but also passed at night and the cathedral was well lit and as impressive at night. The architecture of the building is highly impressive as are the sculptures placed on the building. We went on a guided tour and found the tour guide to be very knowledgeable and patient with everyone.

Iconic

Rated:

Visited the cathedral many times due to work and it being a popular shooting spot due to its architecture and the detail in some of the sculptors that sit on the building. The gargoyles are a favourite of many. I'd recommend the tour if its a first visit.
