There are not words to describe this magnificent structure. I appreciated the sign that asked for silence because it was a place of worship. Riding the funicular down the hill was fun.

This is a beautiful church on top of Montmartre. He copper statues are green with verdigris. There is a 300 step dome that can be accessed for 6 euros. From there you can see all of Paris in front of you.

When you reach the top you will get a beautiful view of the city of Paris. It’s a very enjoyable place to stay at the top. Inside the church it is wonderful.

I actually prefer this church to the Notre Dame, it is amazing. It takes a while to get to Montmatre on the metro from the centre of Paris, and then the walk to up the hill will leave you out of breath, but it is...More

The view from Sacre Coeur can't be beat but there was a lot of people and the area was kind of dirty.

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

It is free to get in. Six euros to go up the tower. If you wish to light a candle the suggested amount is three euros.
