There was a lot of security. The roads were closed around the cathedral and there was a pedestrian perimeter around the cathedral monitered by police. The lines were very long, we didn't even try to go in.

I have been visiting the Notre Dame for almost 30 years now. Every time I come there's always something different to discover. We enjoyed going up on the towers. But more importantly I love seeing it at night, fully illuminated. I am always amazed by its beauty.

Even a non religious person or non Catholic can appreciate the architecture art and grandeur of this cathedral. The history and construction details are worth the visit. Take the audioguide.

We were in awe walking through this amazing cathedral. The gothic style is such a change from the many other cathedrals throughout Europe.
