“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. “

Want to travel but not yet to go to Paris? Here’s how to get to Paris from Singapore and get a glimpse of this famous Parisian cathedral, also renowned for being a masterpiece of French Gothic architecture.
Located at French alliancethe French cultural Center located at Sarkies Roadgo to the exhibition devoted to the construction and restoration of the cathedral.
To cross time and explore the history of Notre Dame and understand how it has become a symbol of France over the centuries, to enjoy a unique VR visit of the cathedral which includes views not accessible to the public even if you are there in person…
This is a great activity if you want to explore something a little different from the usual attractions we have in Singapore.
There is also a huge 1:100 scale model of the cathedral that allows you to see up close intricate 360º details!
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!
