Our Parisian Adventure 2

I want to spend a little more time with the architecture of Notre Dame . This cathedral is the most famous example of French Gothic architecture. It dates back to the 12th century where the present structure replaced a previous church burned in a fire. This cathedral is also a UNESCO World Heritage  site. For Christians, the “crown of thorns ” of Jesus is also stored there.

Finally, I want to end this article with a few shots of the Conciergerie . Formerly a prison, it was also known as the “antechamber to the guillotine” during the French Revolution. Currently, most of the structure is used for Paris law courts.
