After climbing the 422 steps of the towers of Notre-Dame cathedral, visitors are rewarded with one of the most stunning panoramic views of Paris. On the way up to the top are three not-to-be-missed features: The Salle Haute has amazing Gothic architecture with ribbed vaults; the Galerie des Chimères enables you to get close to the famous gargoyles, including the famous Stryge; and a few steps from the top, you can stop and admire the belfry, church bells and the famous 13-ton great bell 'Emmanuel'.
