The Basilica of Sacré Coeur, Paris

Planning to visit the Basilica of Sacré Coeur? Check out our information below!


The Basilica of Sacré Coeur stands atop a hill and towers high above the city in the Montmartre district. A basilica in Paris‘ 18th arrondissement, Sacré-Coeur owes its fame to its ornate domes and white colour. The interior of the basilica is a feast for the eyes, the ceilings glisten with the largest mosaic in France, showing Jesus rising next to the Virgin Mary and Joan of Arc.

At the foot of the Montmartre hill you will find a staircase and a small cable car towards the Sacré-Coeur, the staircase is quite a climb of over 220 steps though. But once at the top, you have one of the highest vantage points in Paris from the square in front of the Sacré-Coeur. The view is truly magnificent!
