*** Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris was recently damaged by fire and might be currently closed to visitors. Inspirock will update this page as more information becomes available. *** Widely considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris allegedly contains some of Catholicism's most significant relics, including the purported Crown of Thorns, a fragment of the True Cross, and one of the Holy Nails. Small, individually crafted statues adorn the exterior and serve as column supports and waterspouts; among these are the famous gargoyles and chimeras designed for water run-off. The cathedral is well known for its statue of the Virgin and Child, its antique organ, and its great bell. A large archaeological crypt exhibit combines detailed models of the architecture from different periods as well as underground ruins. You'll see, for instance, the amazing heating system installed under the floor during the Roman occupation.

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris Reviews

We were fortunate to visit Notre-Dame in May of 2018. During an independent walking tour we took a bit of time to observe the reconstruction efforts of this wonderful chathedrale. Sad in so many... more »
A total scam!!! The management has no regard for the children, they break them completely and beware of those who do not accept the Slavery established in this Mastery:) The supervisor insults the children, the direction without soul to camouflage all sorts of abuses and discrimination. No room for music or singing in this insecure place by the way, place to militarism, abuse of power and big hypocritical smiles on KTO. A lot of crazed and anyone is infiltering in the premises. Mostly immature staff with non-existent pedagogy. Seriously to avoid;)
TO FLEE!!! If your child is happy to sing, if he loves music and is well in his skin, flee this "mastery" he do things that are inadmissible, dangerous and well hidden with children, no security in the premises, incompetence of professors hysterical barely older than the children, the invisible Director, sufficient and useless, when at the choir leader of children jaked and verbal wickedness never seen elsewhere when at the "pedagogical Manager" younger than the choristes, a catastrophe ineffective.... schedules from 1:45 pm until 10pm of very many weeks they go out late every night at 6pm, half an hour for lunch, difficulties in college because of the rhythm of which you are not aware at the outset and they apply methods little Christian: favouritism, racial and social discrimination (you just have to go listen to a Friday night to see the lack of colors) bad verbal treatment, negative competition. They absolutely do not take into account the fatigue of children and threatens you below the table of course if you dare to talk about it! TO FLEE!!! There are many other choirs and masteries of very good level in Paris in which our children can flourish, but this place flee!
