I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: the €6 it costs to climb the dome of Sacre Coeur is the best €6 you can spend on anything, anywhere in Europe. If you get a chance to go, you MUST do it! Sacre Coeur sits at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the City. Once you then climb more than 300 steps to the dome, the view is beyond spectacular!
Sacre Coeur Photo #1. A view of another tower of the church and Paris from the dome. Plus I love the ornate design on the interior wall.
Sacre Coeur Photo #2. The moon rising over the ornate work on the exterior of the beautiful, white church. The church was built using travertine stone, a material that constantly exudes calcite keeping the basilica white even through weathering and pollution.
Sacre Coeur Photo #3. The first foundation stone was laid in 1875, but the church wasn’t completed until 1914.
