I think it’s officially a World Heritage site.
I am not at all religious, but it’s the first thing I went to see when I first came to Paris in 1984, and I love it. Looking at it from the Pont de la Tournelle is (was...) one of my favorite Parisian views.
That is horrible.
Like was said, it is so much history and surviving the uprisings and both of the big wars.
I've turned into a sort of history buff in my older age and it's a global loss of huge proportions.
I'm very sad to say the spire has collapsed: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-47941794
Some of the roof beams that just burned were from the 12th century....
I'm sure it'll come out that some workman left something plugged in or turned on when they shouldn't have.
The spire falling is eerily reminiscent of watching the tower fall.
But in that case it was a deliberate act of terrorism. Hope this isn't!
WWI the bosch only shelled Paris from afar.
An indescribable loss
It seems likely it was an accident related to the renovation works.
Just caught this on the news. Hard to believe what I was seeing. Devastating and heart-breaking. A huge loss to the world.
The wood in there is not that old. For instance the spire (edit) was only 150 years old. If the ceiling collapse that would be the real drama...
It is sad, after all that has gone on around it...but, anything that can be build can be rebuilt.
Not all of it was centuries old, but some of it was. The spire (flèche) fell over an hour ago...the ceiling roof has collapsed, the lead probably still melted... we are now hoping they can save the towers.
What ? Are you sure ?
Makes me sick to see this, such a shame, why?
Pretty sure. The lead roof is gone, all the roof beams burned. It looks like a shell in the main part.
Wow that's nuts... to watch history literally being devoured by flames like that is mind-blowing and humbling.
I think the wood is gone but the stone roof is still there...I hope so anyway. If the stones have collapsed down...
