 France Paris L'isle de la Cite Podtours

English

We take you on a walk round the Ile de la Cité - the medieval heart of Paris, home of the royal court and the Bishop of Paris, the law courts and the king's Prison. We'll see Notre Dame cathedral - one of the defining works of early French Gothic. It's also an excellent example of a nineteenth-century restoration, which in some ways tried to make it even more medieval than it was already. But it's easy to miss the most interesting points - particularly the carvings of the west facade, which not only tell Bible stories, but also show the medieval peasant at work.
The Sainte-Chapelle, a hundred years later than Notre-Dame, is one of the most beautiful and perfectly preserved examples of the rayonnant Gothic style. Louis IX of France ordered its building, and as you would expect from a royal commission, it is splendid - daring in its height and lightness, and decorated with an expanse of fine stained glass. most of which is still original.

Our audio tour starts at the Cité metro station.
