Gothic gargoyles (actually, chimeras, if truth be told) and a stately sunburst greet you upon setting your eyes on the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Construction on Notre Dame Cathedral started in 1163 under the lead of bishop, Maurice de Sully. Over the years Notre Dame has gone through restorations that has kept it in good condition and it is still an operating church to this day, offering daily masses.
