The Sacred Heart - Montmartre Hill - Paris

The hill of Montmartre in the North of Paris rises 129 meters above sea-level.


From the earliest days , Montmartre has been a place of worship: the Druids, the Gauls, the romains temples dedicated to the gods Mars et Mercury; St Peter's church rebuilt near the Royal Abbey of Montmartre on the XII century by King Louis the VI and his wife Adélaïde of Savoy; finally the Sacred Heart Basillica erected at the end of the XIX century.


Access to the dome by using the crypt - Overview onto Paris. Crypt : tombs of cardinals and of the archbishops of Paris who originated the building of the basilica .

Liked the idea of lighting a candle in the cathedral. The painting on the ceiling was magnificent. Wish I'd been directed to the artists square (which apparently is closeby).
The funicular was awesome as my husband is in a wheelchair.
Thank you

I would really like it if you would show the builders of the monument and why they built it.
