Notre-Dame de Paris

Salut !

There are only three things you must see when you’re in Paris : la Tour Eiffel, Notre-Dame, and everything else.

The cathedral has a long history and presence in the capital. And a strong cultural influence as well—from Disney to North European musicals.

Let’s dive into the true grandeur of Notre-Dame de Paris.

Et toi ?

Mentioned in today’s episode:
Man on Wire – Walking on Notre-Dame
Starmania – Original Music 1978
