Notre Dame Cathedral
The famous Notre Dame de Paris is one of the most famous churches in the world, and an example of French Gothic architecture. Its architecture will certainly wow you, notice in particular the flying buttresses and the tall spire, and tiny sculptural elements around the building like gargoyles, and chimeras.
The interior has many musical organs, bells and candles. An especially large organ is noticable in particular, that rests with the background of a beautiful blue stained glass window.
Jardin des Tuileries
The Tuileries Garden is next to the Louvre Museum, and is probably the nicest place to relax in the center of Paris other then the river banks. Great place to hold hands and walk in. It is filled with trees and sculptures from the 16th and 17th centuries and a large round basin. Also there are a couple of cafés where you can find a cup of nice warm café au lait.
I’ll write more soon about the other gorgeous places to visit and eat and shop in Paris. Stay tuned!
