Sacre Coeur Basilica, Paris (France)

Sacre Coeur in Paris is a famous landmark, situated at the pinnacle of the famous butte Montmartre, which is the highest point after the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It is a mini Roman Catholic Church also famous by names like Sacre Coeur Basilica or the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris. It is dedicated to both the sacred heart of Lord Jesus Christ and to the nationalist martyrs, who lost their lives in the Franco-Russian war.

History of Sacre Coeur

Sacre Coeur is one of the few churches built in Paris as a dedication to the martyrs, who were victimised by communalists. Its inspiration dates back to 1870, when the third republic was announced in the face of defeat of France in Franco-Russian war and the then communal war that began with the French revolution. Arch Bishop of Paris Guibert, in 1872 sensed martyr souls amid the clouds atop the hill of Montmartre, which led to the building of Basilica, a place where the sacred souls rested.

While the first stone was laid in 1875, the construction saw good and bad days and was finally completed in 1914 though it was consecrated on 16th October 1919 only post the end of the dreaded World War I. The church was honoured as ‘Basilica’ post its consecration.

Remarkable Architecture of Sacre Coeur

The design of Sacre Coeur is credited to designer Paul Abadie. The overall architecture of the Basilica is inspired by the ancient Romano-Byzantine architectures and takes inspiration from churches like San Marco from Venice and Saint Sofia from Constantinople.

Sacre Coeur Facts

Resting on the apex of the hill of Montmarte, Sacre Coeur is 85m long and 35m in width. It has an inner dome, which are 55m in height and 16 in dimensions and 83 metres high outer dome. Base pillars were made to not only support but also prevent Sacre Coeur from sinking in the soil.

Stone of ‘Château-Landon’

There is a travertine stone at the exterior of Sacre Coeur Montmarte, which is called ‘Château-Landon’. While being very hard, the stone exudes calcite on its contact with the rainwater, thus making it white more. It was brought from a quarry named Souppes-sur-Loing near the Seine.

Nationalist Themes of Sacre Coeur

While it is said that Saint Coeur is dedicated to the martyrs of the Franco-Russian war with a belief that the dead brave hearts rest at the pinnacle of Montmarte. But, in true sense the Basilica is dedicated to the victims of the crime by communal. As you surf through Sacre Coeur, you will see that major designs have nationalist themes embedded on them.

There are two bronze equestrian statues on the portico along with three of its arches. While one represents Joan of Arc, the other is for King Louis IX. Both are national saints of France.

The Savoyarde bell, which was created in 1895 symbolizes the takeover of Savoy in 1860. It is one of the heaviest bells in the world, weighing about 19 tonnes.

Sacre Coeur Basilica: Highest Point after Eiffel Tower

The top of Sacre Coeur is considered the highest point after the famous Eiffel Tower. The whole of Paris city is visible from this place. Also, the nearby countryside, spread up to 50 km, is also visible from the dome of the Basilica.

    • Trip to Europe

      Euro2019 was a dream and Hashtag Travel helped in making it come true. The 12 days in Europe will be etched in my heart forever. Hashtag Travel helped us in planning and executing the trip very smoothly. Not everything can be perfect but ignoring small glitches, everything else was pretty perfect. We started the trip from Netherlands, then to Belgium and enjoying the best waffles we went to France and then ended the beautiful journey in quintessential Switzerland. Kudos to the team specially Priyanka! Thank you and you know where you could improve. Loads of love.

Trip was good with little ups and downs. Thank you so much for organizing the trip and being always available for the query during trip. I really like the availability for the staff to clarify me the things whenever needed. ​ Only thing which I did not liked was of Paris hotel. Location was good but somehow room quality was not satisfactory. In future, I will surely go with Memorable, I also recommend same to try this once. Big Kudos to team Memorable.!!

    • Trip to Europe

      We had booked my honeymoon trip to France and Italy through Hub Holidays. Despite being a package tour, we had the complete independence to chose my itinerary. The hotels provided were just awesome, especially the ones is Venice and Rome. Our hotel location in Nice and Paris was also awesome. The hotel staff in Rome was so courteous that they upgraded us for a complete apartment with full amenities. To my amazement, it also had a terrace with it. Speaking about Hub Holidays, I have never had a better travel agency doing job for me. They were quick and generous while responding to any queries or problems. Keep up the good work guys. Also, I dropped my passport in Disneyland Paris and Hub Holidays helped me in getting it back and made me feel relaxed even though I thought I have lost it. Yeeshu and Prashant were too good.

      I don't know how should I start but from the planning of the trip to the come back to India you guys(especially Yeeshu@Hubholiday.com and Prashant@hubholiday.com) helped us a lot. We faced visa issue from the France embassy as they held the wife's passport for an unknown reason that made us worried about the trip but with the support of your visa assistance team we got that in time. The trip was very well planned. We explored the Paris(the whole city With Hop On Hop Off, visited Eiffel Tower (Amazing experience), Disneyland), Lucern, Bern(as we got the spare day that we utilized), Zurich in and had a very great and memorable trip. A big Thanks to Yeeshu, Prashant and your team for providing the excellent arrangement and support throughout the trip. I would love to have another trip with HubHoliday in future.

      I went to France, Switzerland and Italy. I got a very competitive pricing from Hubholiday. They provided very nice pre, post and on trip support. Thanks Yeeshu and Prashant for your efforts to make my trip memorable. They even provided support for information not part of package such as best option to buy sim. I really liked hop in hop off bus in France and Italy, it was a great way to visit major tourist places in less time in a cost effective manner. Swiss pass in Switzerland was also great I could travel anywhere in Switzerland via it. Tip for first time travelers - make sure you know all information in detail, less vegetarian options are there specially in Switzerland so you can buy fruits, chips, etc from there or bring from India, be well before time on famous monuments, make sure to take care of your stuff to avoid any issues on the trip.
