This sightseeing is one of the few discreet place in Paris that can be easily missed, even it has a central location and a interesting subject.

Notre-Dame overshadows this archaeological site, established in 1980 under the parvis of the cathedral in order to present the archaeological vestiges discovered during excavations performed between 1965 and 1972 onsite. The Crypt offers a unique panorama of the urban and architectural evolution of the Ile de la Cite, the historical heart of Paris.

As a visitor, you'll travel back through time and discover buildings that were built one after another on this site, from ancient times through the 20th century. Reviving the memory of one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Paris, the Crypt shows how the city has continually reconstructed itself, in layers, for over two thousand years.

In 2012, the museography of the Archaeological Crypt of the Parvis of Notre-Dame was completely revamped and reopened to public.
