This card is amazing :-). In the background you can see the Notre-Dame Cathedral. Construction of the building began in 1163 during the reign of Louis VI. During 1250–1345 remaining elements of the cathedral were completed. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, and it is among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass serve to contrast it with earlier Romanesque architecture.
