In front of Notre Dame, there is a huge open space, really not much there, but off to the right side, closer to the Seine, is the Equestrian Statute of Charlemagne. Not quite sure why or how it managed to get here, but this is...More

The Charlemagne Equestrian Statue is in the square in front of the Notre Dame, is free to view and won’t take long either. It’s worth checking out if you’re in the area.

This sculpture is located in a big square in front of the Notre Dame (see pic), which is always packed full of people, all buzzing around the Notre Dame. The sculpture is a nice time waster as you'll be waiting to go inside anyway, but...More

More than likely you will have some wait in the square for Notre Dame. The best feature of the square aside from the front of Notre Dame is the impressive and large statue to Charlemagne who pieced together the Holy Roman Empire. The historical significance...More

We were exploring the area around Notre Dame and stopped to look at the statue; beside one couple using it as a background for their pictures, everyone else was walking past like it was not there. An impressive statue, worth a few minutes of anyone’s...More

The Equestrian Statue of Charlemagne is situated on the Parvis Notre Dame, right next to the Notre-Dame Cathedral. This is a truly majestic and beautiful statue. However, its beauty is overshadowed by the beauty and grandeur of the cathedral. It simply fails to stand out...More

before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
