The Basilica of Sacré-Cœur in Montmartre - Sightseeing Paris - C. Garton _ viaFrance
© C. Garton _ viaFrance
One of the most popular monuments in Paris.

Perched on a hill to the north of Paris, dominating the skyline of Montmartre with its white dome, the Sacré-Cœur basilica is one of the city's most-visited monuments.

Built in the late 19th century, on the hill of Montmartre, Sacré-Cœur is a fine example of Romanesque-Byzantine style architecture. The originality of its design has in turn influenced many other religious edifices such as the Saint Theresa Basilica in Lisieux.

The Basilica of Sacré-Cœur is emblematic of the traditional side of Paris. Don't miss the chance to explore this romantic area of the city, a world of painters, cabarets and literary cafes, a charming district spread around this majestic building.
