My Travels - French Chapter (10) Notre Dame de Paris


September 30, 2015, Paris, France, Notre Dame Cathedral

This morning I saw a friend talking about unfortunate journey of a group of misfits from Duban. The photo drew me in and I couldn't help but laugh.

My Travels - French Chapter (10) Notre Dame de Paris

Shown below is Notre Dame Cathedral that I came across. Because of rush, although I did not go inside, I saw whole picture of Notre Dame de Paris and visited famous Castle Bridge of Love on Seine River near church.

Odin, Notre Dame Cathedral

Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was first built in 1163 and completed in 1345. It took 182 years to complete and is first fully Gothic church in world. The twin towers in front are about 69 meters high, and overall building is made of stone, which looks great, majestic and harmonious. The famous French writer Victor Hugo called it "a symphony of stones" in Notre Dame Cathedral.

During National Day 2015, Ben Wei traveled to Paris, art capital, with her sisters for an oil painting class; fortunately, she was able to see entire building of Notre Dame de Paris, including towering church. spire.

Unfortunately, on April 15, 2019, roof of Notre-Dame de Paris caught fire and fire lasted 14 hours; On May 10, French National Assembly began consideration of a bill for reconstruction of Notre Dame de Paris; в The roof design competition was won by "Paris Heartbeat" scheme proposed by Chinese architects in United States, and on November 6, China and France signed a document on cooperation for restoration of Notre Dame de Paris. It is reported that on November 24, 2020, dismantling of Notre Dame de Paris scaffolding was completed.

So my personal experience and advice is this: travel as early as possible...

Secondly, beautiful shadow of church and castle bridge of love

Notre Dame Cathedral is a novel by great French writer Victor Hugo, first published in January 1831. Notre Dame de Paris describes in a whimsical and contrasting way a love story that took place in France in 15th century, praising kindness, friendship and self-sacrifice of lower working people, while at same time reflecting Hugo's humanism.

It can be said that Notre Dame Cathedral has an extremely high literary and social significance, it broke fetters of former classicism and is a milestone of romantic works.

The immortal literature, in turn, adds romanticism to magnificent architecture. On banks of River Seine, which flows through Notre-Dame de Paris, is "Castle-Love Bridge", bearing oaths of love of many lovers and couples.
