Notre Dame may still be on the mend, but this past week the cathedral’s crypts were opened to the public once again.

The iconic Parisian landmark was closed in April 2019 following a terrible fire that caused extensive damage to the cathedral. Although the crypt evaded permanent damage, it’s taken a full year to clear out the debris and make the space safe for the public again.

The crypt contains the remains of ancient buildings and thermal baths, unearthed over many years of archaeological digs.


The new exhibition will focus on the cathedral’s history, drawing particular attention to the architect of the cathedral’s spire, Eugene Viollet-Le-Duc, and Victor Hugo, who wrote The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
