Photo by @BabakTafreshi | The most visited monument in Paris with about 12 million visitors yearly is more than a cathedral to French. In 1804 the Notre-Dame cathedral was the site of Coronation of Napoleon I as Emperor of France. As I write this Paris firefighters race to save the cathedral from ongoing fire that threatens an icon of the country and an important heritage to the world. #notredame #paris

😢I was so sad when it burned down I cried it is a great loss for the French people and for their culture.

@ghieishere

Sad coz it's part of the History. But it will remain in the hearts of all who witnessed the beauty of Notre dame de Paris within.

A huge loss .... an iconic landmark of immense historical significance. A tragedy.

Please donate to the cathedral’s renovation on Notre Dame’s web site. This church needs a roof, but it can be saved.

It was so sad to watch. Our burnt cathedral in Coventry was not rebuilt but stands linked to the new one as a reminder of peace and reconciliation.

Macron did it.

Let’s boycott France until the filthy rich Vatican pays for the rebuild.
