Notre Dame
09-SEP-2012

Notre Dame

Bishop Maurice de Sully started the construction in 1163. The Cathedral was to be built in the new gothic style and had to reflect Paris's status as the capital of the Kingdom France. It was the first cathedral built on a monumental scale and became the prototype for future cathedrals in France, like the cathedrals of Amiens, Chartres or Rheims, just to name the most famous.

Great feeling to this, love the sparkles of light. This must have really been an impressive building back then, since it still is today. To think of constructing something like this without modern equipment, what an accomplishment. Very nice photograph.
