It was built between 1163 and 1270, the period during which France was one of the most powerful and faithful kingdoms in Europe.
Notre Dame Cathedral was completed only in the year 1345, its construction being an arduous one.
The result was an overwhelming building of 128 meters long and towers of 69 meters high.
The towers, the sculptures, the stained glass and the ship of the Notre Dame are the artistic experiences of the mystical dimension.
The Bell Tower, which reaches 90 meters, was added in the 19th century of Viollet-le-Duc.
Cathedral holds several round windows, but the one in the 13th century is the most impressive with a diameter of 13.1 meters.
It is more interesting to admire the Notre Dame Cathedral from the outside than from the inside in order to fully appreciate the vast symphony of stone.
