At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The residence of the Three wise men.

The Gothic style cathedral was the tallest building in the world until 1889.
It is also the 2nd largest church in the world, after the Saint-Peter basilica in Rome.
Its grand scale makes it the very centre of the city, with its 144m long and 86 m wide nave, and its towers climbing up to 157 m.
It was built on a place of worship that already existed when the city was founded: digging revealed the remains of a Roman temple, as well as a church enlarged in the sixth century and replaced in the ninth century by the "ancient cathedral" under the aegis of archbishop Hildebold.
The original church was destroyed by a fire before 900; a second one was built and received the relics of the Three wise men during the time of theHoly Roman Empire.
