Paris, France (Notre Dame Cathedral}

Notre Dame Cathedral is the 3rd largest Gothic cathedral after Rome's St. Peter's and Canterbury Cathedreal and the first to use flying buttresses. It is known for its unrivaled stained-glass windows and sculptures. The beautiful stained glass windows were removed piece by piece during both world wars and put in a safe place. Climbing the 376 steps to the bell tower gives you a great view of Paris along with its famous gargoyles.
