Day 1 Medieval architecture

So today was all about the medieval in architecture, and one of our hot spots for the day was non other the Norte Dame herslelf. This sassy lady was brimming with gothic accessories, she had it all the buttresses the rose windows and gargolyes. Truly a sight to behold, pictures do not compare to it in person the arua of this place will knock anyone off their feet. This Chruch is a story and is willing to tell it to anyone who will listen. The Statues in front of Notre Dame are the figures of biblical times, back in the medieval era almost no one was educated so architecture was another form of story telling. Also from what I know gargoyles were put on churches to keep evil spirits away.
