Notre Dame
Notre-Dame de Paris also known as Notre-Dame Cathedral or simply Notre-Dame, is a historic Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France. Notre-Dame de Paris was among the first buildings in the world to use the flying buttress (arched exterior supports). The building was not originally designed to include the flying buttresses around the choir and nave but after the construction began, the thinner walls (popularized in the Gothic style) grew ever higher and stress fractures began to occur as the walls pushed outward. In response, the cathedral's architects built supports around the outside walls, and later additions continued the pattern. Many small individually crafted statues were placed around the outside to serve as column supports  and water spouts. Among these are the famous gargoyles, designed for water run-off, and chimeras.  The statues were originally colored as was most of the exterior. The paint has worn off, but the  gray stone was once covered with vivid colors. The cathedral was essentially complete by 1345. The  cathedral has a narrow climb of 387 steps at the top of several spiral staircases; along the climb  it is possible to view its most famous bell and its gargoyles in close quarters, as well as having  a spectacular view across Paris when reaching the top. The design of St. Peter's Anglican Cathedral  in Adelaide, Australia was inspired by Notre-Dame de Paris.
