Wait 107 years why do you say that

Waiting 100 years is already very long... Wait 107 years then it seems to us an eternity !

But then why do we say Wait 107 years ?

It would seem that the construction of one of our monuments favorite histories,I did take 107 years. This French monument to the origin of this expression is located on the île de la Cité in Paris, very known for its gargoyles and its role in The Hunchback Of Notre Dame.

So you guessed what monument it is ?

This French monument whose construction lasted 107 years is our magnificent Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.
.
Indeed, the construction on the initiative of Maurice de Sully would have started in 1,163 and ended in 1,270, i.e. 107 years laterThe idea with Notre-Dame was to design a vast and imposing cathedral that could accommodate the more and more faithful within the capital. The population of Paris had doubled by the end of the 13th century which made the attendance in the churches very important.
