Sacre Coeur


Translation: sacred heart...

Its full name is Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, and ground was broken for it 136 years ago this week on June 16, 1875. It was finally dedicated in 1914...

This is the highest point in Paris and can offer spectacular views... But it's several hundred steps to hike to the top, so I must confess that on my two visits here so far, I've not yet gone to the top...
