Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris

Local nameBasilique du Sacré-Cœur
Location18th arrondissement of Paris, France

The beautiful Romano-Byzantine basilica is (together with e.g. the Eiffel Tower) one of the best-known icons of the City of Lights. Its construction was finished in 1914 and it has been a popular sight ever since. It also features in many films (e.g. Moulin Rouge or Amélie) as it is one of the most recognizable places in Paris.

Since the basilica is located at the top of Montmartre, you can see the whole city from there and take amazing pictures. If you wish to visit the dome, be prepared to walk up 300 steps, as there is no elevator.

There are no guided tours of the inside of the basilica, but you can download a free audioguide to your phone.
