High place of Christendom, one of the most visited monuments!

Every year, 13 million visitors from all over the world cross its portals.

Its fame is not overworked: it is one of the masterpieces of Gothic architecture.
More than a historical monument, this cathedral is above all "the House of God and the abode of men", because this edifice, living by the faith and prayer of the faithful, is charged with human and Christian experience. This place is a witness to the life of the people of God, the radiance of his charity, his fervent hope.
Since its origins, it is the living stones, formed by the believers, that give it its true existence.
