A view from the River Seine of the gothic Notre-Dame de Paris, the famous Catholic cathedral in the French capital that is one of Europe's most popular tourist attractions. This photograph was taken before the historic church suffered major damage by a disastrous fire in April, 2019, and was closed for restoration. Construction of the ancient stone structure began in the 12th Century and featured ornate medieval architecture that included twin bell towers, stained-glass rose windows, flying support buttresses and the soaring wooden central spire (that was destroyed in the fire).
