850 years of history went up in smoke on Monday when a fire ravaged the medieval Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris, France.
The fire caused the building’s spire and roof to collapse, but the main structure and two bell towers have been saved, per officials.
The morning after the blaze broke out, newspapers around the world paid tribute to the iconic monument, one of France’s most famous buildings.
French daily newspaper Le Parisien led with the headline “Notre-Dame Des Larmes,” which means “Our Lady of Tears.”
Libération used a photograph from the moment the building’s spire collapsed and the headline “Notre Drame,” meaning “Our Tragedy.”
The Daily Telegraph in the UK opted for a particularly striking photo.
“Nine centuries of history lost to the unholy inferno,” read the Daily Mail’s front page.
French daily newspaper C News went with “La Desolation”.
“Inferno devastates Notre-Dame,” read The Guardian’s front page.
A sad day for Paris.
