Notre-Dame: More than a cathedral
Notre-Dame Cathedral, located in the heart of Paris, is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. Built over several centuries, it bears witness to the evolution of Gothic art. It is a place of worship, a witness to French history, having survived revolutions and wars, and most recently, a devastating fire in 2019.
The reconstruction of Notre-Dame is a symbol of resilience and hope. The adaptation of this cathedral in LEGO not only celebrates its history and architecture, but also teaches the youngest about its cultural significance.
An eagerly awaited project
The LEGO community, as well as history and architecture enthusiasts, are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to build their own Notre Dame. This set promises to be a must-have, both for its educational value and for its beauty when assembled.
