Notre Dame in Pictures

Notre Dame Catedral

In one of those "This is terrible but it could have been worse" situations, Notre Dame Cathedral was partially destroyed in a fire on April 15 2019. The good news is that the walls did not collapse which would have meant rebuilding from scratch so after a few years of work the historic church should be fully restored.

Notre Dame Cathedral is considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and is perhaps the most famous church in the world. It is the cathedral of the Catholic Archdiocese of Paris and work was begun in 1163 and completed in 1345. During the French Revolution, the cathedral was rededicated to the Cult of Reason, and then to the Cult of the Supreme Being and many of the treasures of the cathedral were either destroyed or plundered. These photos were taken by myself and by Andrea Jerome during three different trips to Paris.
