Its beauty is baffling. Its exterior architectural details are so delicate and intricate that as an art student, I am perplexed by there beauty; everyone should be. The skill, precision and time it must have taken to create such delightful detailing is extraordinary. How anyone could have the patience is beyond me.

Unfortunately, their wasn’t enough time in my schedule to go to the top but my friends told me the view is exquisite and the gargoyles are wonderful.

The interior of the Notre-Dame is opposite to its exterior. It is a place of calm and tranquillity. Allowing the opportunity for prayer and reflection.

There are chances on the perimeter to light a candle for loved ones costing a small donation. Even if you are not religious, it gives the opportunity for remembrance.

If you do want to visit Notre-Dame, I recommend going early morning as the queues become hectic around noon!
