NOTRE-DAME is celebrating 850 years this year.
A large 13 metre (43 foot) high "BLUE" structure rises up in front of the cathedral for the 850th anniversary of Notre-Dame. This structure will stand for a year.
The history of the cathedral began in 1113.......it is the jewel of Gothic Architecture.
A couple of months ago my husband, daughter and I went to Paris........it was our 25th wedding anniversary to each other. This was a dream for me to see Paris, for I love anything that says Paris.
We were fortunate to stay in a Hotel right across the street from the Notre-Dame. Soon as we got to the Hotel we unloaded the suitcases and went to see this Cathedral........it was more amazing and beautiful then I ever envisioned it.
Even though we were tired from our long airplane trip to get there we still milled around the cathedral for a couple of hours......it was absolutely breath taking inside with all the statues and carvings and chandeliers. Except I thought of it as very dark inside.
The Cathedral and the Seine River.
BLUE structure in front.....you could walk up and on top was a seating area for the festivities that were going to be scheduled......then you could get a better view of the Cathedral.
The alter inside.......
