The mighty Notre Dame Cathedral is neither the tallest, oldest nor biggest in the world, but it can rightly claim to be the best-known. And we all should already be celebrating this majestic and noble monument.
Among the great projects and events are: a new bell chime in the cathedral towers composed of eight new bells and a new tenor bell which will crown the great tenor bell Emmanuel, the improvement of the lighting of the interior; the renovation of the Great Organ; an exceptional musical season of the cathedral choir linking heritage and creation; a scientific symposium; exhibitions; monumental shows; exceptional books and a new museography for the Treasury museum.
Notre-Dame de Paris’s structure is one of the oldest in Paris, along with Saint-Pierre de Montmartre (1147), the principal remains of the great Dames de Montmartre abbey founded by Queen Adelaide of Savoy, who was married to King Louis VI the Fat, and parts of Saint-Germain des Prés (1160-1170).
