Join us and learn everything about the terrific tragedy that ruined the Notre Dame Cathedral and how it is planned to be rebuilt. Paris and the whole world suffer the loss of the most significant Gothic church in Europe.

Description

The Resurgence of Notre Dame Guided Tour takes us to the most impressive cathedral in France and the house of the popular hunchback, which was burned in flames during the terrific afternoon of 15 April and broke the heart of people from all over the world. We will wander along the old town of Paris as we unfold the most curious legends, stories and speculations about this horrific incident. Pick our experience through the Île de la Cité, crossed by the Pont Neuf, and discover everything about those dramatic flames. 

This church served as scenario for thousands of stories and is considered one of the most magnificent catholic fortresses in Europe. Composed by a prominent Gothic style and numerous French nuances, it is nowadays considered such a jewel in this City of Light. Now we will witness how, on any given day, the stunning Notre Dame went up in flames.

With the company of our English speaking guide, specialized in the history of this cathedral, we will discover what the monument, located next to the Flowers Market, hides between its rosettes and great pianos. Did you know that the popular gargoyles protect this monument? A part of the temple was being reconstructed and curiously these figures had been removed a few days earlier, leaving it unprotected when mysteriously burned in flames.

Thousands of firemen did their best to save the cathedral and the whole world was paralyzed by the hard news that showed how it was hopeless being destroyed, its Neo-gothic central spire collapsed and its precious jewels were set on fire.

We will learn what happened to the Saint Chapelle as we take a stroll along the Seina River and charming corners like the Place Dauphine, to better understand how the Hunchback’s house will be restored.

Did you know all legends hidden between the walls of the church? Enjoy the opportunity to admire the beauty of its old and colourful showcases and discover the most interesting stories about Joan of Arc and her curious relation with the gargoyles, Henry VI of England or Napoleon Bonaparte. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn everything about the popular Hunchback of Notre Dame with our The Resurgence of Notre Dame Guided Tour!
