Ile de la Cite is the spiritual and historic center and the oldest district of Paris, it was wounded on the evening of the 15th of April with the horrible news that Notre Dame Cathedral was on fire. Notre Dame is such a symbol of Paris and France, to see this beautiful monument of faith in flames brought many a tear to people’s eyes even if you are not of any religious beliefs.
