MonmartreMonmartre makes up one of the villages which came to be annexed into Paris in 1860. It is certainly one of the city’s most distinctive and intriguing districts, particularly noted for its bohemian image.
Rue LepicRue Lepic is one of the most distinctive streets for arriving in Monmartre: it is full of small shops and little restaurants and provides enjoyable glimpses of the city as one goes up. Close to Rue Lepic there is the Moulin de la Galette, immortalised in a very famous painting by Renoir.
Sacré-CoeurThe Church of the Sacred-Heart dominates the city, built with chalky stone from Chateau-Landon which lends it a somewhat innocent air. Its domes are elongated and narrow at the base from units placed one on top of the other. This church was conceived as a place of pilgrimage, which explains the presence of the extremely spacious churchyard and staircase. It remains a hybrid from a stylistic point of view but is certainly one of the city’s icons.
