Notre Dame to Rebuild after the Fire

  • The first and second richest men in France are still slugging it out through cultural capital

The cathedral's famous 18th century organ that boasts more than 8,000 pipes also survived.

"One of the most moving things was to see all the French people who were there that were singing French hymns and songs, it was deeply moving", he said.

Construction on Notre Dame - French for "Our Lady" - began in the 12th century and continued for almost 200 years.

'What we saw last night in Paris was our capacity to mobilise and to unite, ' the 41-year-old leader said in the solemn address from his office in the presidential palace.

Hours after President Macron - whose government had previously refused to spend more than a few million euros repairing the 855-year-old cathedral - launched an appeal for funds while it was still ablaze, nearly €700 million had been raised. "And we can do it".

"We have everything to be able to rebuild it in exactly the same way", Riester told France Inter, adding that the government was looking at ways to encourage donations.

"If you've been to the cathedral, you'll never forget it", said Mulaire.

Speaking Tuesday, he said the cathedral's roof can not be rebuilt exactly as it was before the fire because "we don't, at the moment, have trees on our territory of the size that were cut in the 13th century".

Some prospective Japanese tourists to Paris wrote, "Does this mean we are going to have to see the burnt ruins?" and "I want to donate money to help rebuild Notre Dame".

Grand débat national : les annonces de Macron ont fuité
Ce projet adapté à chaque territoire devrait être dévoilé d'ici à la fin de l'année . Dans ce texte, Emmanuel Macron promet de " fixer pour le pays un cap à 2025 ".

He said the building had been saved within a critical time window of 15-30 minutes by a team of 400 firefighters who worked flat out throughout the night. He added that workers were "surveying the movement" of the structure and the contents in it.

US President Donald Trump relayed Americans' "condolences" to Macron over the fire, the White House said.

But doing that would have brought the ancient cathedral crashing down, the fire chiefs said, in comments backed up by experts in Britain.

With construction starting in 1163, Paris's majestic Notre Dame Cathedral withstood wars and a revolution only to suffer extensive damage in the fire. A cause has not been determined, but the building had been under renovation.

Some 30 people have already been questioned in the investigation, which the Paris prosecutor warned would be long and complex.

Rhone is a French department situated in the east of the country.

French billionaire Bernard Arnault and his LVMH luxury conglomerate, rival high-end designer goods group Kering, Total oil company and cosmetics giant L'Oreal each pledged 100 million euros or more. "I'd say decades", said Eric Fischer, head of the foundation in charge of restoring the 1,000-year-old Strasbourg cathedral.

The spire toppled soon after it was engulfed by flames.

Many more came Tuesday to the banks of the river Seine to gaze at where the roof and steeple once stood. Two police officers and a firefighter were slightly injured. The presentation of the relic, which was woven from thorn branches and believed to have been placed on Jesus Christ during the events leading up to his crucifixion, forms part of ceremonies marking the 800th anniversary of the birth and baptism of Saint Louis.
