We couldn't leave Paris without seeing the Notre-Dame Cathedral. During its 850 years it has seen so many historical events including the crowning of Henry VI of England as King of France; the coronation of Napoleon in 1804 and the canonisation of Joan of Arc in 1920. And, of course, who hasn't heard the Victor Hugo story of the Hunchback of Notre-Dame.
Just one street away from the Cathedral and all was quiet. Couldn't resist a coffee in this bar.
We then went into the gardens at the back of the Cathedral to have a better look at some of the gargoyles.
The Cathedral is on a small island in the middle of the Seine and as we crossed over to the north bank we spotted a swimmer in the river, whilst on the bridge there was a terrific pianist adding to the festive feel of the weekend.
