Description: We are taking you back in time to medieval time in Paris when the building of Notre-Dame was initiated by Maurice de Sully, bishop of Paris, around 1160s. You will experience the events unfold in a completely immersive way and feel like you are a part of the ancient world.

The construction of the cathedral is captured step by step from the ground to the opening of the cathedral once completed. In addition, you will be thrilled by the panoramic view of medieval Paris. It is an incredible experience that captures every bit of information surrounding the history and myths of the Cathedral of Notre dame and that of Paris. The cathedral Notre-Dame gets more visitors than the Eiffel Tower and is also listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO due to its rich history.

Review: It has to be said the Notre-Dame Cathedral is a pretty interesting subject matter and some of the video used in this app is pretty impressive and they have clearly gone to a lot of effort to make it look nice. Sadly the narration seems to bear no correlation to what you are seeing on the screen which means if this “experience” is being used to educate younger kids they might be a little confused as to what they are seeing and learning. While I do feel a lot of time and effort has gone into this app I just feel it comes across as confusing and way overpriced. But still a good effort indeed.
