La Cité des Cloches (Fra: "The City of Bells") is a world in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. It is based on the 1996 Disney film The Hunchback of Notre Dame. La Cite des Cloches means "The City of the Bells" in French. During gameplay footage shown at 2011 Tokyo Game Show, Quasimodo and Esmeralda were confirmed, as well as Notre Dame and the Festival of Fools.
Between Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep and Kingdom HeartsEdit
Sometime after Terra-Xehanort descent into darkness, his heartless, Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, attacked many worlds and swallowed them into the darkness. One of these worlds was La Cité des Cloches. Though it was restored after Sora defeated Ansem and destroyed the End of the World, La Cité des Cloches remained in a state of deep sleep instead of returning to the Realm of Light, and was plagued by the evil Nightmare Dream Eaters.
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop DistanceEdit
Sora arrives in La Cite des Cloches and walks past Judge Claude Frollo. The judge stops him, believing him to be a gypsy due to his unusual clothing. Captain Phoebus arrives to inform Frollo of the Dream Eater infestation at the Festival of Fools. As Sora declares he'll get rid of the monsters, Frollo mutters to himself how he wishes to be rid of gypsies, emanating darkness.
Reaching Notre Dame, Sora sees Quasimodo riding a Nightmare-type Dream Eater, which is a Zolephant, and yells for him to run. However, as Frollo and Phoebus watch from afar, Quasimodo's defiance of not getting off causes the Dream Eater to throw him. A beautiful gypsy woman named Esmeralda helps Quasimodo up and they flee into the Notre Dame cathedral with Sora following once dispatching the Dream Eaters.
While watching Quasimodo talk to Esmeralda, Sora is shocked to find three gargoyles talk to him. Victor, Hugo, and Laverne explain how and why Quasimodo lives in the bell tower out of fear of being despised because of his appearance. Feeling sympathetic, Sora decides to help out.
Reaching the outside, Sora runs into Captain Phoebus, who has now been stripped of his rank and banished. He warns Sora that the gypsies are in danger of being attacked by Frollo and asks if anyone can help. Finding Quasimodo, Sora asks him if he has any idea where they may find them. Using a pendant, Quasimodo figures out it's a map of the city and they quickly locate the Court of Miracles.
Attempting to warn Esmeralda of the danger, they are shocked to find Frollo has found them and commands the Dream Eaters. Sora attempts to fight Frollo to prevent him from burning Esmeralda at stake at the town square, but is knocked out by the Wargoyle.
Regaining consciousness, Sora runs back to the city and battles the Dream Eater once more after Frollo summons it prior to falling to his doom. Quasimodo also rescues Esmeralda. Inside the cathedral, Sora meets Young Xehanort, who calls him a hypocrite for freeing one prisoner while having another in his heart; Vanitas is also seen briefly.
Riku arrives to town, passing Esmeralda. Captain Phoebus ask him if he's seen a gypsy. Not knowing what a gypsy is, Riku says that he hasn't. When thanked by Esmeralda, Riku asks her about Frollo. She instructs him to go see Quasimodo to learn more. Inside Notre Dame, Riku finds Quasimodo and gives him encouragement to follow his own heart's wishes.
Having learned Frollo is now on the outside of the city to conduct business, Riku quickly follows after him. On his way to the outskirts, a Dream Eater called the Wargoyle is born from Frollo's darkness, and Riku manages to escape it. He finds Captain Phoebus preventing Frollo from burning down an innocent family's home, with them still inside. Frollo's anger causes Wargoyle to arrive by his side. When Phoebus calls it a monster, Frollo laughs at the idea, claiming it and the darkness are blessed "gifts to enforce the law".
Riku tries explaining that darkness is clouding Frollo's judgement, but the villain refuses to listen to reason, returning to the city after wounding Phoebus. Riku heads to Notre Dame, where he confronts Frollo. Now power-drunk on darkness, Frollo decides to pass "judgement" on Riku, summoning his Dream Eater whose arrival causes the maddened judge to be unintentionally knocked off into the inferno below the church to his death. After the death of Frollo, Riku encounters Young Xehanort and his unexpected companion: Xehanort's Heartless. Young Xehanort explains "Ansem" is Riku's friend, but Riku defends himself after being insulted by this, claiming to now walk both the Road to Dawn and the Road of Darkness. Shortly after, Young Xehanort and Ansem leave via the dark corridor, leaving Riku to deal with the Wargoyle.
Upon defeating the Dream Eater, Riku finds Captain Phoebus, Esmeralda, and Quasimodo, who overcame his fear of the outside world. When Quasimodo thanked Riku for helping him overcome his fear, Riku tells him he was speaking from personal experience. After everyone eventually dispersed, Riku gets one last vision of Ansem before claiming he knows the path his heart walks.

The Sceptre and the KingdomEdit
This world first appeared in The Sceptre and the Kingdom, but is not considered a canonical appearance.
Sora and Riku arrive here by mistake when Donald is unable to send them to their actual destination during the chase of the villain who stole the scepter of Disney Fairies from Disney Castle.
Once in the city, the two young men fall on Judge Frollo, and since they appear out of nowhere, they are considered necromancers. They flee from Frollo and Esmeralda saves them from death. Esmeralda leads them to the Cathedral of Notre Dame, where they meet Quasimodo. Finally, asking about how to find a door to their world, Laverne guides them towards their true destiny.
