Montmartre, Paris: Montmartre is a hill in the north of Paris, France. It is 130 metres high and gives its name to the surrounding district in the 18th arrondissement, a part of the Right Bank. Montmartre is primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacre Cocur on the summit and as a nightclub district.
Le Sacre Coeur de Paris is one of the most recognizable buildings in the city of light. It is the "coeur" of the bohemian neighbourhood, Montmartre and maybe not so "sacre" when artists flirted with absinthe and prostitutes in other times. Either way, today this white basilica is a romantic reference for those who visit it. Don't miss the view from its viewpoint. One of the best of Paris.
