"Sacre Coeur" Basilique du Sacre Coeur de Monmartre Tip by LizD

  Sacre Coeur

Montmartre and the Sacre Coeur are my favourite places in Paris.
So much so, that the hotel we chose was close by.

The first time I saw it was on my first visit to Paris

After walking up some very steep streets to get there I was rewarded by the sight of this magnificent church. We were fortunate to be there during a service and were greeted inside by the lovely singing of the Nuns. It was a truly peaceful and uplifting experience.
It is a beautiful church both inside and out. I could have stayed there ages just looking at the wonderful painting on the ceiling.
Unfortunately we had very little time there on that occasion but I have been back twice since.

Address: Close to Montemarte
Directions: Near Rue du Cardinal Guibert.
