We started day 6 with the visit to The Basilica of Sacre Coeur, located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, which is the highest point in Paris.
The Basilica of Sacre Coeur simply means The Basilica of the Sacred Heart. It is a Roman Catholic church.
We took the tram up the butte Montmartre.
Unfortunately, photography is not allowed inside the basilica.
The above two photos were taken at of the entrance to the Basilica of the Sacre Coeur.
The Equestrian Statue of King Saint Louis on one of the arches of that basilica.
Ben had went up the dome of the basilica when he visited the basilica in 2007. So, I went up alone. The fee to go up the dome is Euro6.
Here are some of the photos taken from the dome.
Again, the toilet outside the basilica is expensive.
We decided to walk down to the base of butte Montmartre instead of taking the tram. It’s easier to walk down than to walk up.
At the bottom of the staircase, there are a number of girls asking for donation, etc. Just ignore them as it’s a scam.
