It was a sad day in history as the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France caught fire causing catastrophic damage.
Until now, the historic building has survived the French Revolution, two world wars, terror threats, and erosion.
According to historians, construction of the cathedral started back in 1163 under the watchful eye of King Louis VII.
It was finally completely in 1345 and withstood the test of time for over 850 years.

The cathedral was home to the “Crown of Thorns,” which is believed to be the same that Jesus Christ wore during his crucifixion. The cathedral is one of the most visited churches in all of France.
The cathedral was undergoing extensive renovations due to erosion from weather and time before the fire broke out. How the fire broke out is still being investigated but according to news reports, authorities have ruled out arson.
