Notre-Dame de Paris (Our Lady of Paris) is a medieval Catholic cathedral on theÎle de la Cité,an island on the river Seine, in the heart of Paris, France. The cathedral is consecrated to the Virgin Mary and considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. Its innovative use of the rib vault and flying buttress, its enormous and colorful rose windows, and the naturalism and abundance of its sculptural decoration set it apart from the earlier Romanesque style.
Construction began in 1160 and was largely complete by 1260, though it was modified frequently in the following centuries. In the 1790s, Notre-Dame suffered desecration during the French Revolution; much of its religious imagery was damaged or destroyed. In the 19th century, the cathedral was the site of the coronation of Napoleon I.
Popular interest in the cathedral blossomed soon after the 1831 publication of Victor Hugo's novel known in English asThe Hunchback of Notre-Dame.
Approximately 12 million people visit Notre-Dame annually, making it the most visited monument in Paris.
While undergoing renovation and restoration, the roof of Notre-Dame caught fire on the evening of 15 April 2019. The cathedral sustained serious damage, including the destruction of the spire and most of the lead-covered wooden roof above the stone vaulted ceiling. Funding goals for its restoration were met within hours, the work is expected to be completed in 2024.
