The Notre Dame Cathedral in France’s capital city Paris is a medieval Catholic cathedral. The cathedral is amongst the most recognisable in the world and is also one of the biggest. The cathedral is a fine example of French Gothic architecture and its gargoyles that appear on the outside of the building have gained fame for being a notable feature of the cathedral. The build started in 1163 but it wasn't finished till 1345.
On the 15th April 2019, the cathedral was heavily damaged by a fire. It is closed to the public for the forseeable future.
