*** Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris was recently damaged by fire and might be currently closed to visitors. Inspirock will update this page as more information becomes available. *** Widely considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris allegedly contains some of Catholicism's most significant relics, including the purported Crown of Thorns, a fragment of the True Cross, and one of the Holy Nails. Small, individually crafted statues adorn the exterior and serve as column supports and waterspouts; among these are the famous gargoyles and chimeras designed for water run-off. The cathedral is well known for its statue of the Virgin and Child, its antique organ, and its great bell. A large archaeological crypt exhibit combines detailed models of the architecture from different periods as well as underground ruins. You'll see, for instance, the amazing heating system installed under the floor during the Roman occupation.

  • Great
  • A total scam !!! The direction has no consideration for the children, they break them completely and ATTENTION to those who do not accept the slavery instituted in this control :) The supervisor insults the children, the management lies without qualms to camouflage all kinds of abuse and discrimination. No place for music or singing in this unsafe place by the way, instead of militarism, abuse of power and big hypocritical smiles on KTO. A lot of crazies and anyone infiltrating the premises. Immature staff for the most part with a non existent pedagogy. Seriously to avoid;)
  • TO FLEE !!! If your child is happy to sing, if he loves music and is good about himself, run away from this "Mastery" he does unacceptable things, dangerous and well hidden with children, no security in the premises, incompetence of hysterical teachers barely older than children, the director invisible, sufficient and useless, when to the jaded choirmaster and verbal malice never seen elsewhere when to the "pedagogical manager" younger than the choristers, a disaster, inefficient .... schedules from 1:45 pm to 10 pm many weeks they go out late every night at 18h, half an hour for lunch, college difficulties because of the pace you do not you are not aware at the beginning and they apply methods not very Christian: favoritism, racial and social discrimination (they will be enough to you to go to listen on a Friday evening to note the lack of colors) bad treats verbal, negative competition. They do not take into account the fatigue of children and threatens you underneath the table of course if you dare to talk about it! TO FLEE !!! There are many other choirs and masters of very good level in Paris where our children can flourish, but this place run away!
  • Sad what has happened, impresses
  • Excellent and brilliant institution steeped in history, supported by a brilliant and benevolent staff. How lucky to be able to integrate his child when one lives in Paris !!! DO NOT THINK ABOUT THE AIGRIS AND DEFAMATORY REMARKS OF A PARENT OF WHICH THE CHILD NEVER LIKELY LEVELS OR HAS STRENGTHENED IN THIS CURSUS WITHOUT CHOICE OF THE CHILD (which often happens) AND WHO IS GIVES THE PENALTY OF OPENING 3 GOOGLE ACCOUNTS (WITH THIS SINGLE OPINION, EITHER SAID) TO STRONGLY TERMINATE THIS MASTER AFTER THIS FAILURE. The institute is looking for new talents from every social horizon and belief, who will be able to stay in a double curriculum, which requires a little more seriousness and work than in a classical school curriculum but which is not insurmountable. After 2 years of pre-master, which corresponds to 1h30 of lessons on Wednesday, our 1st child (his brother follows the same path) has integrated the preparatory choir and its 16 hours of weekly classes (20h from the choir of children, from of September) per week with change of school for double cursus in arranged schedules and we were stunned by the progress during the end of year concert. We are excited to see her, her friends and her brother blossom in this Mastery. It is enough to go to a concert of the Master or to a mass where they will be present as to vespers to St Germain l Auxerrois to realize the level. In summary, to advise without hesitation if the child is motivated.
