French President Emmanuel Macron has set the goal of re-opening Notre Dame in time for the Paris Olympics of 2024.
Parisians will this weekend be able to check on the progress of restoration work at Notre Dame with the opening of a special village on the cathedral forecourt showcasing the work of the craftsmen on the reconstruction site.
The famous building was partially destroyed by a massive blaze in April 2019.
President Emmanuel has set the goal of re-opening Notre Dame in time for the Paris Olympics of 2024 - which remains the target.
Work on the interior restoration is well advanced, while work on the spire, vaults and frameworks has effectively begun with a 100-metre, 600-tonne scaffold being erected recently.
Completed in 1345, Notre Dame is considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and was a major tourist attraction in Paris.
