    Vaulting.

    The vaulting, being made of stone, shielded the entire structure beneath it, which is why also the altar is almost intact. Those who made it were phenomenal.

    Thank god (if there is one) that it survived (mostly).

    Unfortunately the vaulted ceiling of the stone parts of the nave have also been heavily damaged, with huge gaping holes allowing in sunlight, but it can be repaired. For the most part, after the reconstruction, it will still largely retain the original medieval structure. The bell towers, despite catching on fire a bit, are also entirely intact, as are the flying buttresses.

    After the Notre Dame cathedral burned down, in an unexpected turn of events ubisoft has made Assassin’s Creed Unity free for a limited time. Notre Dame is one of the first missions, and Notre Dame is indeed spectacular so I reccomend it.
