Montmartre & Sacré Coeur, Paris: 72 reviews and 78 photos
Favorite thing: Church of Sacre Coeur (Sacred Heart), perched on the Butte Montmarte, a hill rising to 101 m (331 ft.) above the Seine. With a commanding view of most of Paris, this is a very popular place (just look at the crowds behind me!). The church is a huge basilica in Romanesque/Byzantine style with a dome 83 m (272 ft.) high. It was built in fulfillment of a vow taken by a group of Catholics after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71. It was not completed until 1914. I wanted a close up picture in front of it..... (and this was taken).....
