Full description
Meet your guide for a one-hour visit. Examine the exterior of the cathedral, which was unfortunately damaged by a fire on April 15, 2019. This cathedral is part of the history of Paris and a symbol of France. It has survived wars and revolutions and is not to be missed during your visit to Paris. Your guide will tell you all about this cathedral and show images that will help you imagine yourself in the interior. Your visit will continue in the Latin Quarter, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Paris. It includes the Church of Saint-Julien-le- Pauvre, the oldest church in Paris. This visit is for those who would like to understand the history of Notre Dame Cathedral and learn the latest news about it with the help of a local guide.

Visit the Church of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre, one of the oldest gothic churches in Paris. This church served as one of the chapels of Notre Dame. The two were built during the same period, although the Church of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre was finished before. The church is a 2-minute walk away from Notre Dame, in the Latin Quarter. Also visit one of the treasures in the history of France, dating back to the 12th-century, with an expert tour guide. The Church of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre was the church where many went to say prayers after a fire devastated part of Notre Dame on 15 April 2019. It is the closest church to Notre Dame and is also considered its twin because it was built during the same period.

Meet your guide near Notre Dame and listen to the history of this famous gothic church and the latest news about the reconstruction project. You will then walk 2 minutes away to discover the Church of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre, located on the left bank of the Latin Quarter. Although not as big as Notre Dame, it is still considered a legendary gothic church in Paris. Your guide will explain everything you need to know, from the legend of Saint Julien le Pauvre to the architecture of the church. This is certainly an unforgettable experience that will allow you to feel the atmosphere that reigns within gothic churches.
