THE ICONIC BUILDINGS OF PARIS - #2 NOTRE DAME



An unusual view of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame taken from the Ile St Louis and show the spectacular flying buttresses designed by Jean Ravy.

Notre Dame is certainly a masterpiece of Gothic architecture ... and the fact that it was completed in 1330, 170 years after the foundation stone was laid by Pope Alexander III in 1163, leaves one aghast!
