Sacré-Cœur is a small Roman Catholic cathedral in Paris, France. The cathedral is the most popular landmark in Paris. It is located on the peak of Montmartre Butte, the highest point in Paris. The Basilica of the Sacred Heart is first of all a religious building and is also regarded as a political and cultural monument. The construction of the cathedral began in 1875 and was completed in 1914.
The Basilica of the Sacred Heart is a white church, a mixed style building, on the top of the Montmartre hill, also known as the White Chapel. There are many relief frescoes in the church. It looks very beautiful. The huge mural on the ceiling is also very shocking. If you climb the tallest dome in the center of the church. You can see the scenery within 50 kilometers of the surrounding area.
This is my favourite place in Paris. It’s quite a climb, yet there are some great restaurants at the top. It is a tourist trap at weekends so probably best to avoid then. In the week it’s busy but easy to find somewhere to eat without booking. The views of Paris are spectacular and the cathedral itself is very impressive. Great place to soak in the atmosphere.
A very beatiful chruch that was located up on the hill. To get there, you can take Metro and then you can walk up, which is alot of steps, or you can also take the funicular ride up for only 2 euro. Once you are up, you can also go inside the church, which was so beautiful. I went inside when there was a mass, so alot of people joined it. If you want, you can also hike to the dome, where you will get an amazing view of Paris as well as the Eiffel tower
One of the best views from Paris, go early to avoid to much tourists in the area
