Notre Dame Cathedral is a major location in the film The Hunchback of Notre Dame and its sequel The Hunchback of Notre Dame II. It is here where Quasimodo lives all his life. On the steps of Notre Dame, Judge Claude Frollo killed Quasimodo's mother.
This building serves as a home to the main protagonist, 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 or when Quasimodo saved Esmeralda and yelled, "SANCTUARY!" In the films, Quasimodo seems to have a certain attachment to the Notre Dame, even if he can interact with Parisian society, therefore making him see the cathedral as the place he belongs in.
In Real Life
Notre Dame de Paris, also known as Notre Dame Cathedral, is a Gothic, Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité ("Island of the City") in the fourth arrondissement ("Administrative District") of Paris, France. It is the cathedral of the Catholic Archdiocese of Paris: that is, it is the church that contains the cathedra (official chair) of the Archbishop of Paris.
Notre Dame de Paris appears in two occasions. The first time, Linguini passes by in his bike while going to kill Remy as instructed by Skinner. Still, he isn't capable of killing him, so he sits by the River Seine, across from the cathedral, and talks to him. The second time, Linguini and Colette pass by the cathedral while rollerskating.
Mater, Finn McMissile and Holey Shiftwell drive by the cathedral after their arrival to Paris.

Pamphlet information from Mario is Missing!
Construction of King Louis IX's big project, the Cathedral of Notre Dame (Our Lady), began in 1163 and took 150 years to complete. Every detail of Gothic architecture was used in its design. Situated on the banks of the Ile-de-la-Cite, Notre Dame can hold 9000 people. The church is especially known for its huge rose-colored stained glass window. The window is illustrated with 80 pictures taken from the Old Testament. This is the home of lovable Quasimodo, the hunchback, from Victor Hugo's novel, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame."
