*** 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.

  • Great
  • A total scam !!! The direction has no consideration for the children, they break them completely and ATTENTION to those who do not accept the slavery instituted in this control :) The supervisor insults the children, the management lies without qualms to camouflage all kinds of abuse and discrimination. No place for music or singing in this unsafe place by the way, instead of militarism, abuse of power and big hypocritical smiles on KTO. A lot of crazies and anyone infiltrating the premises. Immature staff for the most part with a non existent pedagogy. Seriously to avoid;)
