IMPORTANT... DO NOT be scared away by the long lines (like I was originally)! Not only do they move SUPER FAST but it is also free to enter! The experience was much better than anticipated for one of the world's most famous landmarks. They even do free tours throughout the day in different languages. Definitely worth seeing and going into! It was really amaing because the church is 850 years old! Much older than most churches and it looked completely different than in design than it's younger siblings around Europe.

A gorgeous must-see despite the throngs of tourist. Pop in and take a view of the stained glass but the highlight to me is the stunning facade.

The center of Paris city, this location is as typical as it is historic. Situated on the ile de la Cite, the area surrounding Notre Dame are filled with french bakeries and cafes out on the streets. It helps that the Seine river flows quietly.

One of the most popular catholic cathedral's in france. Each first friday of the month you can view and kiss the Crown of Thorns of Jesus and the Nails used for his crucifixion. In my recent visit to this church, I noticed the line outside is really very long since visitors are mostly tourists. They will allow you in without lining up if you will attend Mass.

The Notre Dame cathedral is interesting for just how gigantic it is in the midst of crowded Paris. A stunning, stunning sight that deserves more space, but is perhaps more surprising for not having it.

Beautiful architecture. My favourite part was just sitting in front of the church and absorbing the beauty in front of me. Also of interest was the archeological museum that takes you underneath the church to see the ruins of the ancient settlements on the site.

I'm a huge fan of architecture. If you're visiting Paris, you must check out Notre Dame. Admission is free so you can do a quick walk-thru or stay for mass. The style of architecture is known as French Gothic and it took about two centuries to be completed, finally in 1345. The stained glass is stunning and the cathedral has some amazing buttresses. Of course, pictures don't quite do it justice but I was able to capture some really good ones at dusk. It can be seen from the Seine of course and if you take a cruise down the river, there are some great views to be had. We did a night cruise and a bus tour. Inside, photos are allowed but no flash photography. It is after all, a place of worship.
