French Culture Minister Roseline Bachelot has promised to open the restored Notre Dame Cathedral in three years.
This is reported by Ouest-France.
“I can tell you that in 2024, the Cathedral of Notre Dame will be reopened,” Bashlo assured.
This statement was made two years after the terrible fire that destroyed the spire of the cathedral. On April 14, she, along with President Emmanuel Macron, Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo, Cathedral Rector Patrick Chauvet, and other officials visited Notre Dame.
“The devastating fire in Notre Dame has caused deep emotions in France and around the world… 830 million euros of donations were collected, ” Bashlo added.
She called this amount “absolutely unprecedented” and expressed confidence that this money will be enough to complete the restoration.
Recall that on April 15, 2019, a large fire broke out in the area of the spire of the Cathedral of Notre Dame, where restoration and repair work was carried out. The fire completely destroyed the wooden roof and the 92-meter spire, which fell on the stone vault and then burned down on the floor of the cathedral.
The first service in the church after the incident took place only on April 12, 2020.
