About Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris

Sacré-Cœur (or the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris) commands the heights of Montmartre. As well as being one of Paris's famous landmarks, this is a quintessential symbol of Montmartre. Sacré-Cœur's architectural style is interesting, mixing a Romano-Byzantine design while the curved white domes are rather oriental in form. The pure white exterior is particularly eye-catching and the mosaics on the interior of the dome even more amazing. Visitors can climb up the spiral staircase to the top of the basilica dome and be rewarded with a spectacular panoramic view of northern Paris.

    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

    I didn't plan to come to this church in my initial itinerary, but I added a day to Paris temporarily and went to Notre Dame Cathedral twice. Especially when Notre Dame Cathedral climbed the bell tower in Paris, I found that I should also visit this church on the hillside. Although I had only seen little information about it at that time, I vaguely felt that it would bring me some information. Pleasantly surprised. And on the map, it's very close to the hotel we stayed in. We live in District 9. The last hillside is Sacred Heart Cathedral. So on the fourth day of our tour in Paris, after we had a leisurely breakfast, we walked along the brick alleys to the Montmartre Heights. After walking for a few minutes, you can see the spire of Sacred Heart Cathedral from the gap of the building. I thought it would be here soon, but we still walked for more than 20 minutes, because we were not in a hurry, so we took pictures while walking and playing. Coming in front of it at more than 10 o'clock, you have to climb many stairs to get to it. Three domes, one or two small, with a snow-white appearance, are really a little different from other churches in shape. This day is 2016-03-14, which may be the reason for Monday morning. There are not many visitors here. When you enter the church, you are not allowed to take pictures. The murals inside are very beautiful, golden and brilliant, and the picture is really using a lot of gold, the central dome in the picture of Jesus is also a little golden pen. Although there were many tourists in the church, everyone remained quiet and quiet. I sat down on the bench for almost half an hour and enjoyed sitting quietly in the church, especially in such a beautiful and special church. My one ran around to take pictures. He also went to the bathroom next to the church. It was said that the charge for the bathroom was 1 euro. I've always liked churches, and this one in Montmartre Heights looks and interiors are very different from ordinary churches, really gave me a surprise! If I come back to Paris, I will visit it again.

    Sacred Heart Cathedral is located in Paris. Metro Line 2 goes down to Anver Station. It's just a few minutes'walk to the right. The cathedral is built on the top of a hill. There are many people in the middle. There are many people sitting there to block the road, and there is no way in the middle. The church looks very old. The pillars inside are very thick. After entering, it feels that it is oval. There are different gods around it. There are many candles burning. Unlike many churches, there is a dome in the middle, which is not found in many churches in Europe. The water outlet on the outside wall of the church is built in the form of a slender lion. The church is free to visit, so whenever there are a lot of people, there are many black people selling water, beer and handicrafts and souvenirs. Souvenirs are cheap, five for a euro. Because I dare not use black things, I did not buy them. It is also a must-see place for tourists. When I went there, it was past 8 p.m. or there was a tour. Of course, the sun had not set at 8 p.m. in Paris. The photo was taken at 8:30 p.m. Standing at the church door and looking down, you can see the whole city of Paris.

    Sacred Heart Church, located in the Montmartre Heights of Paris. Church building style is unique, both Roman style and Byzantine style. The inside of the bell tower is square. It has a big bell called the Sava Bell. It weighs 19 tons. It is one of the world famous bells. A panoramic view of Paris. Along the side path of the bell tower, there is a street painted by the painter.

    A flawless and magnificent church. Previously, it was said that Montmartre Heights was not well-policed. I was still worried for a while. After all, I was a lone female tourist. But there was nothing wrong with it. Legendary black people tied with colored ropes did not see it, nor did they block the road on the steps. Only those who set up stalls to sell colorful ropes did not sell them forcibly. Maybe it's because I'm on Metro Line 12. When I get out, it's a busy shopping street with a competitive price. It's only a few steps before I get to the cable station. From the cable station, a large number of tourists from all over the world seem very safe. The cable car and the subway ticket are universal. The subway ticket seems to be in use within two hours. Even if you leave the station, you can brush the cable car to get his subway line. Of course, the subway daily ticket and weekly ticket can also be used. There's no need to climb the steps. There are often people on the steps. You can't take pictures if you meet a Mass.

    On this day, we rented a car to play. The first stop was here (so few people would not be harassed by blacks because of taking the subway, but also missed the inner wall of the subway). The whole church presented Byzantine style. The whole church decoration had three arches on the front of the theme of Jesus. I have always thought that the only thing that Paris must do is to enjoy the panorama of Paris on the stairs in front of the Hall of Sacred Heart.

    The Cathedral of Sacred Heart on Montmartre Heights is indeed a good place to overlook Paris. This is a Gothic style building, with some similar structure to Notre Dame in Paris, with exquisite exterior and interior decoration.

    Founded in 1876, the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart is located in the Montmartre Heights of Paris. It combines Roman and Byzantine styles. The two statues on horseback in the church are King St. Louis and Joan of Arc, the French national hero. The reliefs, murals and mosaics in the church are very exquisite. Sisters sing in unison with the audience. The sound effect and aesthetic feeling are comparable to opera. Outside the church overlooks the city of Paris for thousands of years. It is the second highest elevation in Paris outside the Eiffel Tower.

    The Church of Sacred Heart in Montmartre Heights is another high point in Paris. It overlooks the whole city of Paris. The green space in front of the church is a good place for leisure, especially when the clouds are light and the wind is light, and the sky is clear for thousands of miles. It seems that sunshine here can relax the body and mind and be full of vitality. It's very close to the love wall. Mobile map opens the navigation, and you can walk downhill for about ten minutes. Suggest a pot friend with enough time. Come here and have a look.
