Le Sacré Coeur

The Sacré-Coeur, the second most visited monument after Notre Dame de Paris, is situated on the Butte Montmartre.  The Basilica was built following a "national vow".  The catholic church and French National Assembly decided to build this religious edifice on the exact spot the Commune began.  This construction was designed to atone the crimes committed during this insurrectionary era.

Practical information


The Basilica is open all year from 6am to 10.30pm for visits and prayers.
