Notre Dame Cathedral: three years after the fire

The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, visited the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris yesterday to check the progress of the repair work on the building, partially destroyed by a fire three years ago.

Dressed in work clothes and a white protective helmet, Macron toured the interior of the temple, full of scaffolding, and spoke with the workers and specialists in charge of the repairs.

More than 800 years old and a symbol of French Gothic architecture, Notre Dame suffered serious damage as a result of a nearly devastating fire.

That afternoon of April 15, 2019 left shocking images of the flames devouring part of the roof of the temple and the fall of the spire, built in 1859 to replace a previous one, built in the middle of the 12th century.

Days after the fire, President Macron announced his commitment to rebuild Notre Dame within five years. But it is likely that this will not be fulfilled due to the interruption of repair work due to the new coronavirus pandemic.

“If the restoration of the Notre Dame cathedral matters to all of us, it is because it is a symbol of the resilience of our people, of its ability to overcome difficulties,” stressed the French president on the first anniversary of the fire .
