On April 15 2019, People around the world watched with horror as the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral, commonly known as Notre Dame was engulfed with flames which could be brought under control in the early morning of the following day. The fire causes a very strong emotion, as well in France as in the whole world, as well as important media coverage.

Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, for many centuries this cathedral is one of the largest in the West and to many Parisians, the 850-year-old landmark is quite simply the heart of their city, its two Gothic square towers rising above surrounding buildings along the river Seine. Begun under the leadership of Bishop Maurice de Sully, construction spans more than two centuries, 1163 in the middle of 14th century. Building both religious and heritage, it is linked to many episodes in the history of France. As a Royal Parish Church in the Middle Ages, it welcomes the arrival of the Holy Crown in 1239 and the coronation of Napoleon I in 1804. It is also under its vaults that a Magnificat is sung during the liberation of Parisin 1944.

This short history chronicles the remarkable history of this famous building
