Dôme Sacre Coeur, Paris

4.4
#3 of 1,857 in Historic Sites in France
You'll recognize Dôme Sacre Coeur by its picture-perfect white stone. The basilica remains white even with weathering and pollution, due to its construction with travertine stone, which exudes the mineral calcite. Before entering, take a look up at the Equestrian Statue of King Saint Louis on the left and the Equestrian Statue of Saint Joan of Arc on the right. When you enter, you're surrounded by interesting artifacts and art, including the mosaic in the apse entitled "Christ in Majesty,” which is among the largest in the world. Join the daily Catholic mass or meditate at the fountain in the gardens. Using our world travel planner, Paris attractions like Dôme Sacre Coeur can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    The visit to the Sacred Heart and especially its surroundings are essential. the markets of the sacred heart, the small streets paved and its artists and cartoonists... Not to be missed

    Beautiful location high above the central city with great view, lots of people watching but the church is prettiest on the outside.  more »

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
