The statue of Charlemagne on horseback next to the facade of Notre-Dame
In this tour, we will explore three major Gothic monuments of Paris: Notre-Dame de Paris, the Conciergerie and the Sainte-Chapelle. They are all found on the Ile de la Cite in the historical centre of the city no more than hundred meters away eachother.
Apart from the tale of the hunchback, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame astounds its visitors because the refined architecture, statues, stained glass windows, gargoyles and even secret messages written in its stones. The nearby Conciergerie is the best Parisian illustarion of secular Gothic architecture. It started as a palace of the French kings, hundreds of years before the Louvre or Versailles, it was then turned into an awful prison, where Queen Marie-Antoinette and many other prisoners spent their last hours before being killed at the guillotine. Lastly, we will see the Sainte-Chapelle avoiding the long line at the entrance. Although some people think the Middle-Ages as a very dark era in European history, we will see how false this notion could be by looking at the world’s most stunning medieval stained glass windows of the Sainte-Chapelle as an example.
