Notre Dame de Paris – D’autres Vues

Once a little Gallo Roman temple dedicated to Jupiter, this Gothic masterpiece celebrates its 850th anniversary this year.

A thirteen meter high temporary structure built across from the entrance, works like a mini amphitheater for celebratory events in the Place du Parvis, and is a great, if rather ugly, vantage point to view its magnificent facade.

Yet it was the alternative views of the Grand Dame of Paris, that I found more appealing. Her distinctive spire guiding us back each time, to the very heart of the city of lights.

Until next time……..happy travels, no matter where life takes you.
