It beautiful both inside and out. it was first proposed to build the sacred heart church on the butte montmarte in 1870. The first stone was laid in 1875 but it was not completed until 1914 and was not consecrated until 1919 after the first world war was over. You have to go and see this building for yourself so as to appreciate its full beauty. Inside the church is one of the largest mosaics in the world. It is situated at the top of a large amount of stairs but it is worth the trek and for a small fee you can also take a lift par of the way. It is free to enter the church itself.
