Notre Dame and the Seine Cruise

After the Sainte-Chapelle we walked across the island in the Seine to see the cathedral of Notre Dame Paris. Started in 1163, it wasn't completed for 170 years... That's a lot of work!

They still hold Mass here multiple times each day. A choir was singing plainsong while we toured the building.

Then on to the Batobus - a river tour of the Seine taking us from Notre Dame through the city down to the Eiffel Tower.
