the SeineOriginally built as a 12th century fortress, it was converted into a royal palace in the 14th century.

Its current appearance goes back to the 15th century, when the original fortress was demolished and the
wing along the Seine river was built. The palace was extended during the 16th century by architect Pierre Lescot,
who expanded the palace into a complex with two courtyards. A decade later Catharina de Medici added the
Tuileries palace to the west of the Louvre. Construction on the Louvre was halted for some time when king Louis
14 decided to move to the Versailles Palace. The site of the Notre dame is the cradle of Paris and has always been the religious center of the city.
The Celts had their sacred ground here, the Romans built a temple to worship Jupiter.
A Christian basilica was built in the six century and the last religious structure before the
Notre-Dame construction started was a Romanesque church.
