Its name alone provokes emotion. Exclusively at FlyView Paris, we offer you a unique 360° immersion in the Cathedral, now inaccessible, as if you were there. Better still, you will be able to rediscover what once was thanks to never-before-seen images that bring to life the splendour of this magical place.
Enter the cathedral to relive the beauty of Notre-Dame before the ravages of fire. A unique experience in the world that is waiting for you.
During this complete and unique tour, you will be captivated by the spectacular images filmed "before and after", only a few weeks before and after the fire. These sequences will make you relive the former splendour of the monument. You will then become aware of the scale of the disaster, and above all of the challenge that remains to be accomplished to "save" Notre-Dame.
A true moment of memory, to be experienced and shared.
Produced by the Targo studio, the virtual reality experience was conceived from real images filmed in 360 video a few months before the fire, then in December 2019 as close as possible to the destruction. To bring visitors into the most visited monument in Paris, which has been inaccessible since the fire on 15 April 2019, the production team obtained exceptional authorisation to access the interior of the destroyed cathedral. The images were taken by drone and by rover, a remote-controlled device made indispensable by the lead contamination.
Today, Notre-Dame is still inaccessible to the public. After the phase of securing the site, then the phase of the project's state of affairs, the reconstruction phase started at the beginning of 2022. A thousand oak trees have been donated by the regions of France to rebuild the main framework between the towers. In early 2023, reconstruction will begin according to the plans drawn up at the time by Viollet Leduc. Then will come the frameworks of the nave and the heart. The reconstruction of Notre-Dame, and in particular its spire, has been the subject of debate between supporters of modernisation and those who wanted it to be rebuilt identically. President Macron has decided: the general principle is to rebuild identically, while offering "a new youth" to the building. The end of the work is planned for 2024
The history of Notre Dame de Paris began in the 12th century with Maurice de Sully, bishop of Paris, who launched its construction. The project dedicated to the Virgin Mary was also part of a major redevelopment of Paris. The construction work lasted about two centuries. The cathedral is part of French history: the reception of the Holy Crown in 1239, the coronation of Napoleon I six centuries later and the funerals of great politicians such as Georges Pompidou and François Mitterrand. Before the fire of 15 April 2019, it was visited by 13 million visitors per year.
Revivre Notre-Dame was designed to bring the soul of Notre-Dame to life for all cathedral lovers. Whether you are a French or foreign visitor, a Parisian, a guide, an adult or a child, you will be transported into a unique experience, gripping with emotion.
