Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris: I first visited Notre Dame back in 1999. It was the first real European cathedral that I ever visited.
⠀
I've visited it several times since then, most recently in 2015.
⠀
There is an incredible amount of history in this building. It was where Napoleon was crowned Emperor of the French (not of France).
⠀
It contained priceless works of art and some of the best-stained glass in the world.
⠀
Moreover, it was one of the most iconic and best-known buildings in the world, and certainly in France.
⠀
It will be rebuilt and it will take years and hundreds of millions, if not billions, of Euros to complete.
⠀
I will back to see and photograph it when it is done.
⠀
This isn't the first cathedral to suffer such a fire, and even though it doesn't happen very often anymore, it probably won't be the last.
