Notre Dame’s roof
The cathedral is considered a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, even thanks to the many stunning details it presents both inside and outside (rose windows, steeples, gargoyles, statues…). Each part of it worth a picture, but we included it in our photo tour due to the magnificent panoramic view it can offer of the city from its roof.
