MANTES-LA-JOLIE - OCTOBER 29  : A view from below of gargoyles on the Collegiate Church of Notre Dame, Mantes-la-Jolie, Yvelines, France on October 29, 2008. Mainly built in the late 12th century in the Gothic tradition, and added to until the 14th century, the church resembles in style Notre Dame de Paris. It has fine sculptural doorways and a rose window. The area was heavily bombed during the 2nd World war after which the church was restored. In the background the tower is just visble through the morning mist. (Photo by Manuel Cohen)
