Unfortunately not even as magnificent a structure as this is immune from vandalism. In 1978 the Chapelle du Sacré-Cœur (Chapel of the Sacred Heart) was destroyed by arson. Luckily, the main structure was spared. But tragedy often brings opportunity, and the chapel was rebuilt in a mixture of old and new.
Much of the stained glass is absolutely stunning, as one would expect of a structure this magnificent.
But it’s the scenery behind the altar that draws the eye immediately upon entry into Notre-Dame.
