Bonjour Parismarais readers,

First of all, we wish a very happy birthday to the Cathedral of Notre-Dame. One of the most widely recognised monuments in the world, a year-long celebration began today in her honour to celebrate the event. Renovations in progress during this special jubilee include changes in lighting, nine new bells, and a new viewing platform.
