15 Photographs of Notre-Dame de Paris


Religious or not, everyone will agree that Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral is an architectural treasure. Declared to be as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, sadly the cathedral caught fire on 15 April 2019.

People around the world have been moved by this sad event, but we all share the hope of the French people that the Notre-Dame de Paris will once again be restored as the heart of Paris. 

Here are some photos of the aftermath – the cause behind the fire is still unclear, but today we wanted to give a little homage to this magnificent building with photos prior to the fire.
