In fact, it seems that the most valuable artifacts inside Notre Dame have been spared.
The cathedral’s grand organ, which was built in the fifteenth century, was not touched by the flames.
The altar and cross are still standing, as well as bells and bell towers.
The Crown of Thorns, which some believe was placed on the head of Christ and which the cathedral calls its “most precious and most venerated relic,” was rescued from the fire, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said in a statement.
French media has also reported that a fragment of the True Cross and one of the Holy Nails were saved.
