Paris, France

The temple is located on Montmartre Hill, it rises above Paris with snow-white domes. Construction began in the second half of the XIX century, when France was going through difficult times. The temple was erected on the site of the demolished Benedictine monastery, where Ignatius Loyola, the future Grand Master of the Jesuit Order, made vows. The basilica was built over 30 years by donations from Parisians and public funds.

If you can’t do stairs or are claustrophobic, don’t do the climb to the top. If you aren’t either of these, go early and enjoy the great fun of climbing winding, tight stairs to an awesome 360 view of Paris! My 8 and 11 year old son.. Read more »
We were not sure if it was worth a visit while in Paris. No doubt, it was worth it. Two drawbacks: First, it is not near the city center (like 30 minutes by subway). Second, you need to be prepared to climb the stairs. Or, you can take a small lift t.. Read more »

Beautiful church with gorgeous mosaics. So nice that you DO NOT need a ticket or to schedule ahead of time - the way many other attractions in Paris used to be. There was a line but it moved very quickly. We were only in line 5 minutes before we got .. Read more »

This is one of the best locations to visit while in Paris. I would say first place, especially if you aren't lazy enough to walk around and inhale the spirit of old Paris. Each time we visit this Basilica we find something new!
A nice church. When I was visiting, there were many people praying and singing. The view from outside was very nice. The neighborhood is nice and worth visiting. You could use the same bus ticket to go up to the church because it's on a high Hil.. Read more »
Beautiful - free to look inside if you are quiet; admission needed to climb to the top. Area was pretty quiet and peaceful early to mid morning on the shoulder season. Beautiful gardens surround. Funicular was just the cost of a metro ticket. Many ne.. Read more »

As the name indicates it's Basilica of sacred Heart. Hub of romantics, couples come here to put locks on the walkway outside the church, not sure if it's for the commercial aspect or their devotion. But definitely a place to visit. If you a.. Read more »

The view from the hill will deserve your effort to go up stairs. You can see the entire city of Paris, and sunset view is breathtaking especially. If necessary, you can take a cable car to get there. The interior of the building is also exquisite. Wo.. Read more »
It was something unique and very beautiful. You should not miss it when visiting Paris. We also recommend the Dome for the amazing panoramic view of the entire city, if you can handle the stairs (almost 300) and the tight space.
A really beautiful church. I think the fact that it is placed on a hill makes it even more beautiful and interesting. As you walk up the stairs you see it white and big, getting closer and closer and it adds magic to the place. From here you have a n.. Read more »

Beautiful church at fantastic location. Very peaceful and calming. I enjoyed the walk to get there too. And from the church courtyard you can see Paris very nicely. I visited it 3 times while I was there. Definitely I would go back.
Every aspect of this Cathedral, inside and out, is marvelous. Outside there are a plethora of street performers, pickpockets, and restaurants. The view from Paris is outstanding as well. Inside is nothing to scoff at either! A great addition to my.. Read more »
