It's the most visited monument in France and Europe. The tourist jobs and tax revenues that the cathedral generate likely justify pouring hundreds of millions of not billions into getting it open ASAP.

It's France dude, relax. The cathedral is a beautiful example of medieval construction. I'm pretty much an agnostic, but I love medieval architecture, especially cathedrals, and I can separate it from the heinous aspects of the church.


Yeah, but it still smells like Paris.
