Paris, France

 Île de la Cité hosts one of the world's most well known cathedrals:  Notre-Dame de Paris, famous for its flying buttresses.  Over a hundred buildings in Paris are now taller than Notre-Dame, but for a millennium these Gothic spires dominated the Paris skyline and anchored the spiritual life of the nascent nation-state which grew into modern France.  [2005]
