The Notre Dame Cathedral is a major location in Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame 2. It is here at this very place, where Quasimodo lived at all of his life. On the steps of Notre Dame, Judge Claude Frollo killed Quasimodo's Mother.


This building serves as a home to the main character, Quasimodo. By law, it serves as a refuge for those who are persecuted. Examples of this are when Esmeralda was in trouble with the law, and had to stay in the cathedral. The second example is when Quasimodo saved Esmeralda, and yelled, "SANCTUARY!". In the films, Quasimodo seems to have a certain attachment to the Notre Dame Cathedral. Even after he was accepted into Parisian society at the end of the film, he sees the cathedral as the place he truly belongs.
