Sacré Coeur: A basilica in the heart of Montmartre District

The Basilica of the Sacre Coeur (“Sacré Cœur” meaning Sacred Heart) is located on the top of a hill in Paris called Montmartre. It is a place of perpetual prayer, day and night, with a particular intention for world peace.
Inspired by Romano-Byzantine architecture, the Sacre Coeur is in the shape of a Greek cross (like a ‘+’ sign), with a high central dome and 4 smaller ones around it.

Getting there and enjoying it

There are 2 main ways to access the Sacre Coeur:

Climb up the hill by walking through the garden in front of the Sacre Coeur

Take the cable car (Funiculaire) on the west side of the gardens (metro ticket needed)

To avoid the hordes of people that come visit the Sacre Coeur, go there at night. The calm 10pm mass is the perfect time to enter the basilica. The Dome and Crypt can be visited any time, as there aren’t too many visitors. 

Highlights: Statues and Mosaics

Aside from the impressive (and unusual) architecture of the building, make sure you take a look at the large statue of Jesus Christ, protected by two bronze equestrian statues, Joan of Arc and Saint Louis outside the main facade.
Inside, take a look the organ (damaged because of the soot from the burning candles) and the huge mosaic on the ceiling of the apse, France’s largest. Climb up the Dome (€6 or €8 if combined with the crypt) for a breathtaking 360° view on Paris and its other iconic monuments.

History: The Sacre Coeur Basilica to promote world peace

In 1870, Paris was occupied by the Prussians and famine struck its population. Two catholic businessmen made a vow to build a church to end the divine punishment of Paris.
Montmartre has historically been a place of worship and that is where the first stone in placed in 1875, based on architect Paul Abadie’s plans.
It took 34 years (and funds donated by 10 million people) to complete the Sacre Coeur. Its consecration was forestalled by WWI until 1919. 

Conclusion: 24h prayers for the heart of Jesus

There is 24 hour praying in the Sacre Coeur, symbolizing perpetual adoration. The Sacred Heart (founded in 1765) is shown as a flaming heart shining in divine light, bleeding and wrapped in a crown of thorns.
It represents the devotion to the heart of Jesus Christ, the symbol of Divine Love.
For this symbolic aspect, as well as its architectural beauty and great views from the Dome, the Sacre Coeur is an absolute must do in Paris.
