La cathédral actuelle a été précédée par une basilique paléochrétienne (Ve siècle) et une grande église carolingienne (IXe siècle). Commencée en 1211, la construction a été achevée pour l'essentiel dans les anées 1270-80. Les parties hautes datent des XIVe et XVe siècle. La Galerie des Rois perpétue la mémoire du baptême de Clovis en ce lieu. Depuis cet événement, trente-et-un rois de France ont été sacrés dans la cathédrale. Au-dessus du portail central, la grande statuaire célèbre la royauté de Notre-Dame, couronnée par Jésus, son fils enfanté pour que le monde soit sauvé. La Passion à gauche, la Résurrection au-dessus de la rose central et la Parousie, retour glorieux du Christ à droite, résument la foi et l'espérance de l'Eglise.

A fine example of 13th century gothic architecture, depicting in its decoration the coronation ceremony of the Kings of France.

English translation:
The current cathedral was preceded by an earlier Christian basilica (fifth century) and a large Carolingian church (ninth century). Begun in 1211, construction was completed mainly within the years 1270 - 1280. The higher parts date from the fourteenth and fifteenth century. The Gallery of Kings depicts the baptism of Clovis here. Since that event, thirty-one kings of France were crowned in the cathedral. Above the central portal, the great sculpture celebrates the royalty of Our Lady, crowned by Jesus, her son borne so the world would be saved. On the left entrance is the Passion, above the central rose is the Resurrection and the Second Coming, and depicted above the right entrance is Christ returning in glory, together they summarize the faith and hope of the Church.
