Sacré-Cœur (or the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris) commands the heights of Montmartre. As well as being one of Paris's famous landmarks, this is a quintessential symbol of Montmartre. Sacré-Cœur's architectural style is interesting, mixing a Romano-Byzantine design while the curved white domes are rather oriental in form. The pure white exterior is particularly eye-catching and the mosaics on the interior of the dome even more amazing. Visitors can climb up the spiral staircase to the top of the basilica dome and be rewarded with a spectacular panoramic view of northern Paris.

Ahh Paris! What a #HolidayVacation that was. I first went in 2004 and found it an entirely enchanting city. Just walking around and seeing all the shops filled with soft and warm lights, the smell of fresh bread, the haughty walk of Parisians...it's all so fitting. If you're looking for good photos of the city, make sure you visit Basilica of the Sacred Heart, aka Sacré-Cœur. The overlook from there is great.
Finally removed to Montmartre, there was a little bit high, and slowly climbed up, went to the Sacred Heart Cathedral. Because the heart is still in a state of collapse, but also photos come out like this. Sacred Heart Cathedral, which is not allowed to take pictures; we will quietly put away the camera phone. Visit inside the circle, but also beautiful surprises. I met their grand church worship. We are also involved in, sat in the middle of the church, the nuns came out, came out priests, monks as well as children, the whole picture is super Mei, then prayers, choir singing. For people of faith in Europe, it is fantastic, although we do not understand, but in which the body can feel a little some of the power of faith.
