Who we are...

Founded more than fifty years ago, the Association CASA is solicited by the clergy in many churches in France to ensure a reception of visitors who allow them both to be informed of the history, the architecture and the décor of these monuments, and to understand the Christian meaning.

At Notre-Dame de Paris a hundred volunteers are trained rigorously in order to offer quality visits in several languages.

Continuing education is one of the cornerstones of our business, with about ten annual lectures given by academics or from extensive personal research. Training sessions in situ complement this device.

Becoming real lovers of the Cathedral, some members of our team have been led to undertake research, for some in master or doctorate, and to participate in the most recent and most prestigious publications on the Cathedral.

 

How long for a visit

Our team adapts to your need and availability. There is no fixed duration for our visits and we will spend together the time that suits you, depending on your wishes and possibilities. The program of the visit will be adapted according to your interests. However, the influx of visitors present in the building complicates the movement in the Church, which makes it necessary to provide at least one hour of visit to have an overall approach to the place.

How much does the visit cost

Visits being given by volunteers are not paid. However, some are committed to thanking their guide by leaving a few euros: know that all support gestures are fully donated to the Association CASA, allowing it to ensure its functioning. Our Association lives on donations: do not hesitate to support us at the end of the time spent together!
