Notre-dame de paris

The Alliance Française presents (RE)NAISSANCES: Notre-Dame de Paris

“Three years ago, a terrible fire ravaged Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. On April 15, 2019, what caught fire was not only one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, but above all a symbol of the nation. “

We didn’t know there was a Notre Dame Exhibition right here in Singapore we can explore, with the famous instagram-worthy South Rose stained glass window at (RE)BIRTH: Notre-Dame de Paris.

But of course, one of the main highlights of the exhibition has to be the unmissable Southern Rose stained glass (also known as Midday Rose). The original Notre-Dame window was a gift from King Louis IX of France, built in 1260 (more than a millennium ago!).

Apart from the Notre-Dame exhibition, there are other exhibitions and even screenings of French films (with English subtitles) to discover.

So if you feel ready for a trip to France but can’t physically get there yet, head over to Alliance Française and spend some time immersing yourself in all things French!
