This infamous medieval Catholic cathedral was consecrated to the Virgin Mary and is considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. It’s construction began in 1160 and was largely complete by 1260. Notre-Dame suffered desecration during the French Revolution and there have been numerous cleaning and restoration projects in the following centuries. The cathedral sustained serious damage after a fire in April 2019 and the French government hope that after stabilising the structure that reconstruction can be completed by Spring 2024, in time for the opening of the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. With around 12 million visitors a year it is the most visited monument in Paris.
