Cathedral district

Place de la Cathedrale, Strasbourg Place de la Cathedrale, Strasbourg

In the limited scope of the Grande Ile we find traces of Roman remains, medieval churches, Renaissance buildings and monuments, 18th century mansions ... all vestiges of the city’s history over the centuries. It is therefore difficult to find a true architectural unity, however there is a certain consistency in the urban layout, heavily influenced by the organization of medieval streets and squares.

The jewel of the Grande Ile remains the Notre Dame Cathedral whose spire, the Astronomical Clock and statues testify to the exceptional artistic and technical quality of this Gothic construction.
