The Sacré-Coeur Basilica dome is the second tallest point in Paris. It provides amazing views, including a view of its’ slightly taller brother the Eiffel Tower.
Located in the hilly Montmarte area of Paris, the Sacré-Coeur Basilica takes some climbing to get to. Or, visitors can opt to take the funicular – an escalator-like cable car – to the base of the Basilica grounds.
The building itself stays a chalky white color year after year, thanks to the Château-Landon stone used for construction.
Sacré-Coeur is a great architectural and historical visit at any time, but the Christmas and Easter seasons offer a particularly meaningful experience.
