Sacre Coeur – A Photo Gallery
Posted In: France
Montmartre is a large hill in Paris’s 18th arrondissement. It is 130 metres high and gives its name to the surrounding district. The Sacré-Cœur is a Roman Catholic church located at the summit of Montmartre. The Sacré-Cœur was built between 1875 and 1914.
The church has over 11 million visitors each year so it is usually very busy so be prepared for lots of people. Photos are not allowed to be taken inside the church, but considering how beautiful it is outside, you will be able to take stunning images. You can also climb the 300 stairs of the main dome for even more amazing views of Paris.
Once you have taken in the beauty of the Sacre Coeur, take some time to walk around Montmartre and watch the amazing local artists at work.
Santa Maria degli Angeli – A Photo Gallery
As a frequent traveler to Paris, I have been to Sacre Couer many times in many seasons. It is a beautiful spot but these days you have to be careful of when you go. There is a lot of pickpockets, etc. And in the evening lot of youth drinking on the stairs. If you try to go for a sunrise shoot you have to be very aware of broken glass all over the steps – it is a bit dangerous until the street cleaners come to clean it up – feel sorry for those guys who have to do this every day. I will say it is a beautiful spot for sunrises though!
It is so sad to see the problems that places like the Sacre Couer are experiencing. It is such a beautiful place.
