Built between 1163 and 1245 on the Île de la Cité, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is one of the oldest Gothic cathedrals in the world. The name of the cathedral means Our Lady and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
In its eight centuries of history, the Cathedral of Notre Dame has been reformed several times, being the most important the one of the mid-nineteenth century. Throughout these years the flying buttresses were replaced, the rosette was inserted south, the chapels were reformed and statues were added.
Important events have taken place in Notre Dame, such as the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte, the beatification of Joan of Arc and the coronation of Henry VI of England.
