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.
Notre Dame de Paris
Notre Dame de Paris, located on the island of Laguna in the heart of Paris, is the most powerful Gothic church in France, the church is free to visit, the interpreter is 5 euros. Sitting on the subway, I will stop at the station. After going down the station, I will pass to the Notre Dame de Paris. There will be a lot of people. In short, you will not find it. I saw online saying that in Paris, I just walked and found Gypsy. More and more people (black people), indicating that another attraction has arrived, telling everyone with my actual experience that this sentence is 99% correct. Notre Dame translates to our woman, our Virgin, the mother of Jesus, the Virgin Mary.
Here, still very excited. Even on a rainy day, the face is still glowing. Everyone on the front of the Notre Dame knows the posters and the Raiders, which are everywhere. This is the side. Gothic mad construction and unparalleled sculptural architecture, some of which are in repair, but the original construction began in 1163, known as one of the most shining buildings in history, imagine! The statue of the 28 kings on the outer wall of the Notre Dame, harmonious and atmospheric. Its all trembled when I walk into the church and look up. Its wonderful! It is like a toy church, but it is made of marble. A little bit of light praying for music, I am calm but my heart is awkward. Ancient, old-fashioned churches that have been around for centuries! When the old age reaches a certain level, it begins to be advanced. As the marginal benefit increases, the church feels more and more treasure. Such a high dome, the church's sturdy building, personally feels that it is really used to watch the aristocratic temperament, used to place faith.

If the main itinerary is to browse the museum's friends, friends who have been in Paris for more than 5 days can consider purchasing a museum pass and can visit more than 60 Paris. Museum, fare 2 days 39 euros, 4 days 54 euros, 6 days 69 euros. I traveled around Christmas, and every museum in the off-season was bought on the spot and there was no queue.
[How to get there] Take Metro Line 4 to Saint-Michel or get off at Cit. Take Metro Line 1 and 11 and get off at Hotel de Ville. Take Subway Lines 7 and 14 and get off at the Chatelet stop (this route is a bit far). Alternatively, take the RER Express (B, C) line and get off at the Saint-Michel-Notre-Dame stop.
[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.
