Notre Dame de Paris
We first saw the Notre Dame de Paris cathedral at night, and even then you could see it was something to marvel at. We didn't tour the inside until later and it was just as grand on the inside. European history is so much more fascinating than America's, since everything is so much older and full with centuries of history. This cathedral was started in 1163 and completed in 1345. It has been restored a few times since, but still holds true to its original design.
