  • If you were visiting Palazzo Madama, do not forget to spend half an hour visiting the four Gothic sculptures from the portals of Notre Dame. They represent an angel head, a head of a bearded man, a head of king and a female head. Date back to 1200, they were later removed during the French revolution at the end of 700. Found in 1977 they were moved to the Cluny Museum. Interesting the large movie that masterfully tells their story. See also the section dedicated to Victor Hugo and his Notre-Dame de Paris of 1831.
