This isn’t the post I originally had planned for today but I just wanted to share some photos of my favourite building in one of my favourite cities.

Paris: Part Two
Last time there was Place de la Bastille, Place des Vosges, the Eiffel Tower, Pont Neuf, and the Musee d’Orsay.
This time we start off with Notre-Dame, probably my favourite building in the world.
Containing France’s largest organ, it took 170 years to build. After the revolution in 1789 the Cathedral was vandalised and renamed the Temple of Reason, but fell into disrepair. Restoration began in 1841 and lasted another 25 years.
