All of the castles in the Disney Parks are inspired by famous castles in Europe and around the world. But other non-castle landmarks have contributed to the castle designs as well.
The famous Notre Dame Cathedral in France features a cathedral spire put into place by French Architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in 1859. This spire was unfortunately destroyed in a major fire on April 15, 2019, but a rebuild of the spire is part of the plans for restoration of the cathedral.
This spire, also called a fleche, from the French term meaning “arrow shaped” adorns one of the Disney castles.
