LEGO Architecture 21061 Notre-Dame Cathedral

LEGO Architecture 21061 Notre-Dame de Paris stands 33 cm tall, 22 cm wide, and 41 cm deep. The model features a removable roof and towers, providing access to the detailed interior with columns, arches, and a circular niche. On the outside, you can see the iconic rose windows and the central tower with sculptures. The black base includes a nameplate. Religious references are not included in the set.

Rok Žgalin Kobe, a designer at the LEGO Group, had this to say about the process behind the new set: “When designing the LEGO Architecture 21061 Notre-Dame de Paris, we tried to capture not only its appearance but also the way and stages in which the original was built. We wanted LEGO fans to relive the architectural journey and evolution of this landmark during construction, thus fostering a deeper appreciation for its real counterpart.”

The Notre-Dame, located in the heart of Paris on the Seine, is an iconic Gothic masterpiece dating back to the 12th century. With its impressive architecture and rich history, it served as a Catholic church and bastion of art and culture. Famous for its imposing towers, Gothic spires, and stained glass windows, the cathedral was severely damaged by a devastating fire in April 2019. This event sparked worldwide support for its restoration. It is expected that Notre-Dame will reopen in December 2024.
