Paris in Beautiful Black and White: The Sacre-Coeur


Situated at the highest point in Paris, The Sacre-Couer (or the The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris) is an extremely popular tourist destination in the city and deservedly so. The Sacre-Coeur was a surprising hit destination for me in Paris – although I knew it was popular and had heard and read a lot about it, I underestimated its beauty and the area that surrounded it.

The Sacre-Coeur itself is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus built of travertine stone which is bright white and looks glorious in the sunshine. As well as having amazing views from the top of the hill that look across the entire city, the hill also hosts a perfect place to have your lunch and soak in the atmosphere of Montmartre.

Although it was busy at the time we visited, I actually liked that the area had a buzz to it, the other tourists were excited to be there and so was I.
