How much money did they take from poor people to build this place? This is just a big church on a hill. Notworth the effort. Go uo to the hill and walk your way down, ignore the church.

We stopped here while on a Citron tour and enjoyed watching the sun set from the steps. Unfortunately, we didn't return to visit it in more depth, but just seeing the surrounding area and visiting the grounds was so worth it.

Hubby and I took an audio walking tour of Montmartre hosted by "Join Us In France" podcaster Annie Sargent. The tour was very informative and ended at Sacre-Coeur. We toured the cathedral and then overlooked the entire city of Paris. It was a wonderful experience ! We were so glad we made time for it during our short stay in Paris !

I thouroughly enjoyed my visit even and It was easy to arrive after taking the metro. The Basilica itself is breath taking. When we were walking up the hill and finally arrived , we all just stood there and stared in amazement. There were a lot of people , but we could still take our time. The views of the city are also amazing. It is definitely worth the trip!

A beautiful large basilica. It does not as much of the spectacular stain glass as Notre Dame or St. Chappelle but is impressive in its size. Very crowded at the top of a steep hill.

A Paris landmark worth visiting. You’ve seen this from a distance, why not enjoy it up close and take in Paris from here?

We loved the walk (hike) up, taking advantage of the good exercise after a lovely dinner nearby. There’s also a funicular if you don’t want to make the steep trek on foot.
It was Friday evening, an hour or so before sunset, the place was a little crowded, lively. Lots of people apparently awaiting sunset. Several people offering bottled cold Heineken for sale. Each section of the staircase had a street performer playing live music for tips. The place was vibrant with sights and sounds worthy of both a date night or tourist destination.

Expansive views of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower off in the distance. Pack a picnic or some drinks and plan to stay a while, making use of the giant staircases for sitting or lounging.
If you’re a dog lover, there’s also a dog park in the immediate area where you can watch some four-legged friends frolic and play.

Don’t miss out!

Best to visit early in morning or late in evening for spectacular views of Paris. Here is some advice:
1) Arrive via Pigalle Metro stop, then walk the windy stairs up to Montamarte.
2) Montamarte is an amazing area with windy streets, cafes, flowers, and amazing views.
Walk the area over and over. Drink, talk, and be merry.
3) The Basilica is gorgeous
4) Unless having mobility issues, no need to take the furnicular.
5) The artist expo area is a showcase of great inspiring Parisian artists

Yes, the area is packed with tourists, and yes the area is incredible.
