  • SACRÉ CŒUR 75018
    At the beginning of the 1870 French-Prussian war, a catholic wish decided on the construction of a church dedicated in the heart of the Christ. After long works, the Sacré Cœur was completed in 1914 on the Butte Montmartre. Since its dome and after 237 stairs of a narrow staircase, a spectacular sight on all the Paris region offers itself to the visitors.
    At some 130 metres in height, this square is part of the highest places of the capital, located near the Sacré Cœur in Montmartre. Place du Tertre has always attracted tourists, with its picturesque liveliness, its artistic heritage dating from the 19th century, its café terraces, caricaturists, naïve painters and portrait artists.
  • HALLE SAINT PIERRE, 2 rue Ronsard 75018
    Located to the right of the Sacré Cœur, Halle Saint-Pierre lies within a 19th-century warehouse which was transformed into a cultural centre 15 years ago. It is the home of the Musée d'Art Naïf, the Musée en Herbe as well as a tea room, workshops and a bookstore. At the homely café, treat yourself to quiche, salad and carrot cake as you sip one of the many varieties of herbal tea.
  • MARCHE BARBES, bd de la Chapelle 75018
    Be sure to visit this market, where you can sample a world of flavours: every country in Asia, Africa and elsewhere is represented. Top quality products are sold here.
  • LES VIGNES DE MONTMARTRE, between rues des Saules and St Vincent 75018
    1,900 feet of grapevines stretch across 1556 m² of land along the slope of the Butte Montmartre. In the 17th and 18th centuries, wine was used for medicinal purposes. Today, 1710 50 cl bottles are produced each year.
  • MONTMARTRE CEMETERY, 20 rue Rachel 75018
    Numerous celebrities rest in this cemetery which was built on a former plaster quarry. Notable figures include Sacha Guitry, Louis Jouvet, François Truffaut and Michel Berger.
  • JARDIN SAUVAGE SAINT VINCENT, rue St Vincent 75018
    On a hillside surrounded by low walls, this garden is the last remaining trace of the Montmartre forest. Established in 1985, it allows nature to take its course in a charming vegetal jumble where small wild animals live. Along the pathway or near the pond, this garden provides a fascinating lesson in Parisian ecology.
  • LE MOULIN DE LA GALETTE, rue Lepic 75018
    Nine windmills once crowned Montmartre. They were not only used to grind wheat but also to press grapes and crush materials needed for factories. The windmills were the destination for Parisians out to enjoy a Sunday stroll. Only two windmills survive: the Blute-Fin and the Radet, which, along with the gardens and the farm, form the famous Moulin de la Galette with its renowned ball.
  • GRANDE SYNAGOGUE DE LA VICTOIRE, 44 avenue de la Victoire 75009
    Begun in 1867, inaugurated in 1874, and opened to public worship in 1875, this ornate Romanesque style synagogue with Byzantine flourishes is the work of the architect Aldrophe, who built the Thiers Hotel and the synagogue of Versailles.
  • OPERA GARNIER, 8 rue Scribe 75009
    Napoleon III decided to build the Garnier Opera as part of the capital's major renovation carried out by Baron Haussmann. Charles Garnier, a 35-year-old unknown architect, won the competition to build the opera with a sparkling design of gold, marble, crystal and onyx. The building took 15 years to complete and was inaugurated on 15 January 1875 by Mac Mahon.
  • EGLISE DE LA SAINTE TRINITE, place Est. d'Orves 75009
    Erected on the orders of Baron Haussmann, the building took six years to complete and was considered quite inexpensive despite its luxurious decoration. The building is no less impressive.
  • EGLISE NOTRE DAME DE LORETTE, 18 bis rue de Châteaudun 75009
    Built by Hippolyte Lebas between 1823 and 1836, it imitates a Roman basilica with its neoclassical lines. Its decorative elements splendidly illustrate the various trends in religious thinking under the Restauration and the Monarchy of July.
