The eastern end of Notre-Dame Cathedral at night.

A nighttime view of eastern end of Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris, seen from quai de l’Archevêché. A spire was first built on the middle of the transept between 1220 and 1230, and was taken down in 1792. The current steeple was commissioned by architect Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc and constructed in oak covered with lead in 1859.
