Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris is gradually regaining its splendour, 5 years after the terrible fire that ravaged this jewel of Gothic architecture and flagship of Parisian heritage.

While its partial reopening is scheduled for 8 December 2024**, the spire surmounted by its famous cockerel has already found its place at the very top of the building and once again stands proudly in the Paris skyline.

Notre-Dame de Paris: Au cœur du chantier" exhibition

Although the cathedral remains closed to the public, behind the palisades many craftsmen are busy restoring its former glory.
The 300-square-metre "Notre-Dame de Paris: At the Heart of the Worksite "** exhibition is entirely free of charge. Visitors can take a tour through four stages and eight themed islands**, retracing the major stages in the restoration of the building and showcasing all the trades involved in the project.

Maison du chantier et des métiers, parvis de la cathédrale (entrance opposite 6, rue de la Cité, Paris IVe). Free exhibition with no reservation until the monument reopens. Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 8pm.

Notre-Dame, a timeless monument

Its towers, gargoyles and stained glass windows have inspired great artists, beginning with Victor Hugo who immortalised it in his masterpiece of French literature “The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.” The Notre-Dame Cathedral was the most visited national monument in the capital, attracting 13 million pilgrims and visitors every year.

Sitting majestically on the Ile de la Cité, this splendid cathedral, built more than nine centuries ago, is located in the heart of Paris, and in some ways, of France, since all the distances between Paris and other cities in France are calculated from the Notre-Dame square.

The cathedral is part of the Unesco World Heritage site "Paris, banks of the Seine".
