Notre Dame de Paris is a Gothic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité, one of two islands in the Seine River (the other being Île Saint-Louis.) The island could be considered as the center of Paris and the location where the city was founded. Notre Dame de Paris is still used as a Roman Catholic cathedral and is the seat of the Archbishop of Paris.

Apart from its use in Christianity, the cathedral itself is well-known as a set in the novel "Notre Dame de Paris" as known as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" by acclaimed French writer Victor Hugo. It was also featured in Walt Disney's animated film "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," loosely based on Victor Hugo's book.
