It is set in in Paris, in and around the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris.
The book tells the story of a poor barefoot Gypsy girl La Esmeralda and a misshapen bell-ringer Quasimodo who was raised by the Archdeacon Claude Frollo. The book was written as a statement to preserve the Notre Dame cathedral and not to 'modernize' it, as Hugo was thoroughly against this.
The story begins during the Renaissance in , the day of the Festival of Fools in Paris.
