Notre-Dame Cathedral

This Neo-Gothic, 700 year old church is dedicated to Our Lady (Notre-Dame).  This church is most notable for its flying buttresses.  In the facade of the church, Mary is holding Jesus, flanked by Adam and Eve.  Below them are the 28 Kings of Judah, of which were temporarity decapited during the revolution.  Gigantic but gorgeous rose windows cover three sides of the church.
