Of course no visit to Montmartre is complete without a peek at the white basilica on the hilltop, Sacre Coeur. Above is a view of the basilica from Musee d'Orsay.
Below is the traditional postcard view of the basilica, lawn and stairs.
There are fantastic views of the Paris skyline from the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city, where the"Basilica of the Sacred Heart" is located. Here, for example, is the Eiffel Tower.
All photos were taken by me with the exception of me with the umbrella, which was taken by my brother.
A relative newcomer to the historic landmarks of Paris, Sacre Coeur was designed in a Romano-Byzantine style with French nationalistic symbolic elements by architect, Paul Abadie, and was completed in 1914.
