Notre Dame Reconstruction Continues on Two-Year Anniversary of Devastating Fire

Reconstruction work continued on Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral on April 15, two years to the day after a devastating fire engulfed the iconic church.

French President Emmanuel Macron visited the cathedral and spoke with construction workers on Thursday. He later announced that the site would reopen in 2024, tweeting, “France knows how to overcome trials. Notre-Dame de Paris will be reunited with its faithful and its visitors in 2024.”

The French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs published a video showing reconstruction and restoration work on the building over the last two years, as well as a message giving thanks for the “outpouring of support from around the world.” Credit: @parisdomeujeito via Storyful
