Sacré-Cœur …

… is one of the churches at top of the hill Montmatre.

When standing in front of the white basilica, the city is at your feet and you have a wonderful overview. To come here you have several opportunities.

The easiest way seem the be taking the Montmatre Bus. The next easy way is the Funiculaire, a cable railway. You can also take you way up throuth the artistian quartier.

Go slowly and enjoy the view, but be aware of the salesmen I mentioned in one of my previous posts .

The other church right next to Sacré-Cœur is St. Pierre de Montmatre, one of the oldes churches in Paris. According to wikipedia it’s founded in the 3rd century and is the location at which the vows were taken that led to the founding of the Society of Jesus.

(Don’t forget to look at my previous posts about Paris)

I’ll publish the next topic soon. Stay tuned!
