Notre Dame de Paris

view map

Notre Dame de Paris, known simply as Notre Dame in English (pronounced /notʀ dam/ in French, /nɒtrə dɑːm/ in the UK and /nɔtər deɪm/ in the US), is a Gothic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in Paris, France, with its main entrance to the west. It is still used as a Roman Catholic cathedral and is the seat of the Archbishop of Paris. Notre Dame de Paris is widely considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. It was restored and saved from destruction by Viollet-le-Duc, one of France's most famous architects. The name Notre Dame means "Our Lady" in French.
