Notre Dame is one of the most famous churches in France. It was built over a period of about 150 years (11th century-ninth century). The original church that stood on this site was small, less than 30 feet long and 15 feet wide. In 1180, a new building project began under Archbishop Jean de Bruges. Work continued for more than two centuries until 1279 when a great fire destroyed much of Paris including the previous church. After the fire, King Charles de Gaulle ordered that another church be built in its place. This new church was completed in 1448 at a cost of about $15 million in today's money. It remains important today because it is one of only a few French churches that remain largely as they were built.

Where is the Norte Dame Cathedral?

Notre Dame de Paris, often known as Notre Dame Cathedral, is a Gothic-style Roman Catholic cathedral church located on the Ile de la Cite, a tiny island in the middle of the Seine River in Paris, France. The cathedral has been called the "the most beautiful monument built by man".

It was built between 1250 and 1345 over an earlier church founded by Saint Stephen, a French Christian priest and martyr. The cathedral stands on the site where King Charles the Great and his army were massacred in 732 during the Battle of Poitiers. In 1431, Louis XI signed a treaty with the English at the nearby Hôtel du Petit Bourbon, now part of the University of Paris.

The first written record of the existence of a church on this site dates back to 1163. It was then named Deus Sanctus Martinensis ("God the Holy Martinian"). In 1248, it became the parish church for the merchants of London who lived in the vicinity of the palace of King Henry III. They paid for its construction from their own funds (although the king did give them an exemption from taxes for a period of ten years). The new church was named after St. Martin, a French Christian priest and martyred under Diocletian in AD 303. He is considered the patron saint of tradespeople, travelers, and soldiers.
