Yes- a nice place: the entrance to a different part of the city- Montmartre. It’s colorful, scenic, picturesque and unique, as is all of Paris. It was nice to be here and to use the elevator at the metro station. Correction- the word refers to nuns who spend their lives and devote their time to worship- that’s the real reason for the name of the area (hey- the Sacre Coeur church is the centerpiece and pinnacle of this elevated neighborhood).... it’s certainly not what I wrote in January 2019 from the previous visit.

My husband and I went to Paris on our honeymoon and decided to try and go to as many Christmas markets as possible during our stay there. This one was advertised as one of the best Christmas Markets in Paris. However, I found it small with maybe about 10 booths in the square. All of the booths shut down very early - about 6:00pm, so there is not much night activity. Which is surprising, as this square is in the middle on MontMartre. We were able to visit a couple vendors before the market closed, but there was not a lot of selection. I was disappointed, as this was not as many blogs and reviews suggested. Typical square, and close by there are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from.

We ended up here for the metro. It's a small square based around the centre metro entrance/exist. There is a few shops and restaurants nearby as well as a little carousel.

Walking up the hill from the 1st arr, (during the train strike), we were so happy to reach this square for a rest, nothing fancy, however, there is a carrousel for the kiddies, and an entrance to the metro, (original art nouveau style). A good place to have a picnic lunch, is Square Jehan Rictus home to the “I Love You wall”, across the road. All in all a good place to start exploring Montmartre.

Place des Abbesses is streaming with humanity - cafes, greengrocers, restaurants, pharmacies, cobblestone streets, tourists, locals, and all one has to do is set eyes on Sacre Coeur. It's a trek, but there's a funicular. Once there, the view of Paris unfolds below and is spectacular. Lots of little galleries, hotels and the Montmartre museum are all in the neighborhood.
