What is the most popular monument in all of Paris?

After Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral, the Montmartre Sacré-Cœur Basilica is the second most popular attraction in Paris, with more than 11 million visitors annually.

Four reasons to explore Sacré-Cœur Basilica

The first reason – and undoubtedly one of the most important – is the extraordinary panoramic views it offers. The basilica was built on the highest point in Paris (at an elevation of 130 metres). Its dome rises 83 metres in the air. This gives you the opportunity to admire all of Paris, including its most beautiful monuments (the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Pantheon, Opéra Garnier and more). There is also the tour of the basilica itself, with its four cupolas, one of the most amazing organs in Paris and its bell, the “Savoyarde”, the biggest in all of France. In addition, the basilica enjoys prestigious surroundings in the famous Montmartre district. Lastly, it is easily accessible via the funicular, and entrance is free, with no reservations required.
