Sacre Coeur

Sacre Coeur or “Sacred Heart” in English is beautiful Roman Catholic church on top of the Montmartre hill that can be seen from across Paris. This church is located at the highest point in the city and has a gorgeous view overlooking the rooftops of Paris. I enjoyed spotting the Centre Pompidou which looks like a plastic lego amidst the see of more traditional Parisian rooftops.

The church is relatively modern by European standards. Construction began in 1875 and the church was opened in 1919.

The inside of the church is gorgeous, but photos are not allowed. However, one can imagine the details inside the church just by examining to intricacy of the outside.
