Notre Dame in Paris is located on the right bank of the Seine. A typical Gothic building, it bears witnesses to the development history of Gothic architecture. Victor Hugo's novel of the same name allows this building to enjoy an even greater reputation. For this reason, it has become a must-visit spot in France. When Napoléon was crowned, the pope had no choice but come here from Rome.
L'amour est la chose la plus douce et la plus amère
Notre Dame is one of my favorite buildings in Paris. The old architecture is incredible and the inside is absolutely beautiful!
On the afternoon of April 15, the Notre Dame de Paris burned and the spire collapsed. When the famous world heritage was destroyed, the world was full of horror, and all of them were deplored and rebuilt. I dont know what day.
And I, before that, I have already decided to travel to France, but I first learned that I have not seen the Notre Dame.
23rd, I came out of the Louvre, walked along the Seine and walked to the right bank of Notre Dame. Far from looking at the rest of the robbery of the Notre Dame, the maintenance of the tripod and the protective net around the church, as if it is a wounded and heavily wrapped veteran, looking tired, exhausted.
The bridge leading to Notre Dame and the nearby roads have been pulled up on the cordon, and the soldiers armed with live ammunition guard the road and keep visitors away.
The next day, I took a cruise on the Seine and looked at the Notre Dame from the river again. The tourists on the boat quietly watched the church burned in the fire, feeling heavy.
I can only take the injured Notre Dame far away and leave silently.
[Editor's Note: On 15 April, 2019, a fire destroyed large portions of Notre-Dame. The much of the historic wooden roof and the cathedral spire were lost. As of this edit, the extent of the damage was still being assessed. The cathedral will be forced to close for the foreseeable future.]
Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, known simply as Notre-Dame, is often described as the very heart of Paris. Construction work began in 1160 and was largely completed in 1260, through renovations and modifications occurred often over the following centuries. It is a stunning example of French Gothic architecture and particularly well-known for its many gargoyles and flying buttresses. The cathedral’s stained glasses windows date from the 13th century, making them essentially priceless. Notre-Dame has played an important role throughout French history. In 1802, Napoleon Bonaparte was crowned Emperor of France here. Located on the Ile de la Cite in the Sine River, Notre-Dame is a true masterpiece.
