Between archaic gothic times and classical style, Notre Dame de Paris was, in the early 13th century, the most accomplished cathedral in Europe. Seven centuries later, the restoration work of Viollet-le-Duc, the most emblematic 19th century restoration, opens up to a modern way, the conservation of historical monuments. Nowadays, this 13th and 19th century masterpiece is being restored with the most sophisticated technical and doctrinal tools.
