Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

The Notre Dame is considered to be one of the greatest examples of the unique French Gothic architecture. Construction began in 1163, and took over 170 years to fully finish. The treasury of the cathedral houses some of the most important relics in Christianity. These include one of the Holy Nails, that was used for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. A fragment of the Holy Cross is also safely locked away. From Napoleon's crowning to Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the structure has been an integral part of France's history and culture.

The lle de la Cite is one of the two natural islands on the River Seine. It is connected to the rest of Paris through a number of bridges, of which Pont Neuf is the oldest and most famous. The island has three primary attractions, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Conciergerie prison and Louis IX’s Sainte-Chapelle. The Sainte-Chapelle has one of the greatest collections of 13th-century stained glass collections in the world. The Conciergerie was the location where Queen Marie Antoinette was imprisoned for execution in the 18th century.
