           Notre Dame de Paris construction lasted from the beginning of 1163 well into the 1240s. It is generally considered as one of the finest example of French and European Gothic architecture.
The cathedral naturalistic style of sculptures and brilliant stained glass stand out against the sober earlier Romanesque style of architecture.
In the 1790s the cathedral suffered vandalism during the worst and bloody phase of the French regicide Revolution. Most of the religious imagery decorating the cathedral was damaged, destroyed or vanished.
In the 1830s the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc removed the decoration unfit to the edifice returning the cathedral to its 'original' Gothic style.
