Paris Hotel Notre-Dame
History of Notre-Dame de Paris
Under the auspices of Bishop de Sully, construction began in 1160 and was completed around 1345. During its construction many events occured, such as in 1297, the canonization of King Louis IX as St. Louis, and in 1304, when Philip the Fair celebrated his military victory by riding his horse up and down the aisles of Notre-Dame. By the 17th century, it was very fashionable to loathe the Notre-Dame.
In the eighteenth century, a lot of the medieval glass was removed simply to make the building lighter, and medieval fittings and furniture were often replaced by those of later styles.
However, it was not until the French Revolution in 1793, when the Parisians took a disliking to anything that was "royal", that they destroyed the statues and stripped all "anti-republican" art from inside and outside. In the following year, the French revolutionary government outlawed religion and Notre-Dame was officially renamed as the Temple of Reason.
For some time, the French revolutionary government held propaganda shows in the building.
Yet, it was in 1802, when Napoleon ruled France that he reintroduced Catholicism with a solemn ceremony in the newly rechristened cathedral. Here is where he crowned himself emperor.
Before leaving, don't forget to walk round to the public garden at the east end for a view of the flying buttresses supporting the choir, and then along the riverside under the south transept, where you can sit under the cherry blossom in springtime.
In front of the cathedral, in the square separating Notre-Dame from Haussmann's Police Headquarters, is what appears to be and smells like the entrance to an underground toilet. In fact, it is a very well-displayed and interesting museum, the Crypte Archeologique, in which are revealed the remains of the church which predated the cathedral, as well as streets and houses of the Cité dating as far back as the Roman era.
On the pavement by the west door of Notre-Dame is a spot known as "kilometre zero". This is the point from which all of the main road distances in France are calculated. The Ile de la Cité is the symbolic heart of the country, or at least of the France that in school books fights wars, undergoes revolutions and launches space rockets.
