Significance Of Notre Dame


Notre Dame Cathedral is a 12th century structure in Paris, France, and is one of the oldest catholic cathedrals in existence. The spyre that once sat on top of the cathedral was built to express devotion of Catholics to the church. Cleaning crews had removed significant religious statues from the building prior to the fire starting and have been saved from the flames, but the cathedral has continued to burn into the night.
