Notre DameApprox. Time: 3 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

Notre-Dame is a masterpiece of gothic architecture. Imagined by Maurice de Sully, the cathedral was built between the 12th and the 14th centuries (1163-1345). The cathedral remained relatively unchanged until the French Revolution. Today, you can gaze upon the glorious building from the Place du Parvis. The 387-step climb to the top of the towers allows you to see an amazing view of the city as well as the statuesque gargoyles.
