Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris

Sometimes they say your first is the most memorable, well the first place that we visited while in Paris was Notre Dame. The structure kept you locked in your tracks admiring the beauty and history.

We walked around the grounds and realized that it was free to go in and take a look around. The moment you walk into this amazing Cathedral you notice everything, the smell of the wood the stained glass. Everything is incredible and very peaceful.

The wonderful sight of looking down the alter, the lights the feeling that you felt while being in such great presence. There are several other places that we visited that had the history flare and the memorable moments, however when you have been somewhere and it actually takes your breath away you know that you enjoyed it.

The best things in life are free.

Notre Dame is by far my favourite place in Paris and one of my top 5 that I've visited. There is something hauntingly magical and mesmerizing to me.

Notre Dam is one of my favourite churches, and one of the prettiest (in my books) spots in Paris! I loved looking at all the gargoyles too- reminded me of the Disney movie :)

The only thing that we regret about our trip to Notre Dame was not climbing the 400 steps to the top of the tower but that will be a definite must-do experience on our next trip to Paris!

Short and sweet, but very much to the point and capturing through the senses how awesome it is. Your photos are also stunning. You're so right Heather, you don't need to be religious to appreciate a place like Notre Dame, or many other wonderful churches, shrines and cathedrals that one finds here in Europe.

Lovely pictures - looks particularly good in black and white. I've been to Paris many times but I don't think I've ever been inside the Notre Dame before. Looks like that's something I should aim to do on the next visit.
