Our Lady of Paris, probably one of the most well-known churches in the World.

“Notre Dame de Paris is often reputed to be one of the most prominent examples of Gothic architecture in both France and in Europe as a whole, and the naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass are in contrast with earlier Romanesque architecture.”

Of course, we went in to take a look. It was pretty crowded, but we still managed to take a good look-see at the church we’ve all heard so much of before. Inside, we found a small scale-model of the Roman Catholic Cathedral, done very carefully and with great detail.
