All the magic of Paris, City of Lights, comes alive for Christmas. Paris is known as the City of Light since the 16th century thanks to Louis 14th who decided to lit up the streets with lanterns and candles to fight crimes. Later in the 19th century its name of City of Light remains thanks to gaz lighting of the many streets. Today Paris lives up to its reputation and lights up during the Christmas Season. Starting with the famous Notre Dame Cathedral and its Christmas tree is a must. Nested in the Island of the City or Île de la Cité, this 800 years old Gothic monument erects every year on its plaza a large Christmas tree, making it a most beautiful sight all day long, and especially at sundown. Notre Dame Cathedral which can also be called “Our Lady” became the crowning site of famous kings like Henry VI of England and Napoleon. Still in use today by the Roman Catholic Church for Sunday mass, it is the seat of the Archbishop of Paris. Notre Dame or “Our Lady” has become a must see during your Christmas holidays.
