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.

      The best means to travel in Paris is by metro and we explored that a lot to travel to the tourist spots. Raj from wise yatra was very helpful in guiding us before and during the tour. Sommet Eiffel Tower was a beautiful experience. Disneyland was such a fun outing that we would like to visit it again.

      It was a nice experience with travel triangle and holiday aces. After putting our requirements we were contacted by Ms. Meenu Goyal, and with her enthusiasm and positive response, she convinced us to end our search at Holiday aces. Mr. Sumeet and team helped us right through the air bookings, travel passes, vouchers for the excursion, hotel, and cab booking. All the arrangements were appropriate and proved to be an asset throughout our tourism. The WhatsApp group which they made including us and specialist of their team was very helpful and most of the time they were prompt to respond. All the hotels were good except for the Paris hotel, which had very small rooms with limited breakfast options. The staff everywhere was very courteous. The only set back was our air tickets handled by the team Holiday aces. The things were delayed and that cost our group a split journey. One group had to spend a day in transit only. Overall we enjoyed our trip thanks to Ms. Meenu, Mr. Sumit and their team. We are looking forward to more trips.

      Really enjoyed the trip. Few things could have been better. For example, our cab pick up from the hotel to the airport did not arrive and we had to rush and catch a cab with a hefty amount. However, thanks to travel triangle and Pratik's prompt management we got the refund! The hotels in Amsterdam and brussels were excellent. Hotel in Paris could have been better. Also, we couldn't locate our guide for the Eiffel tour. It would have saved us a lot of money and headache if were informed about daily bus and train tickets that are usually available for intra city travel. Overall, really good service. Loved the Amsterdam canal cruise and the day tour to Bruges. The Lido show is a must if you are visiting Paris.

      Really satisfied with the trip! All the hotels provided had pretty good location. Shubham Gupta from HUB Holidays was very active throughout all stages of the trip, right from planning the itinerary to the very end. We planned our entire itinerary during late hours and Guptaji was happily available to receive calls during those odd hours also. They entertained even the last minute changes. VISA assistance is also amazingly handled and we had no problem whatsoever. The sightseeing options provided were also good. Over all it is an excellent trip to Paris, Swiss and Italy. Only the Gondola ride at Venice was cancelled due to rain.

    • Trip to Europe

      Me and my wife planned 11 days trip to France and Italy during mid Feb'19. To say that our trip planner Siddhant and his team put together the experience of a lifetime for us, still somehow seems an understatement! When we started planning this trip, we spoke to about two to three different travel planners and while almost all of them were thorough and impressive in their own ways, Siddhant was the one who provided itinerary suggestions which were real time and exactly what we were looking for. Siddhant himself is quite familiar with various destinations across Europe and hence his expertise helped us in planning a wonderful trip. We started our trip from Paris. We stayed in Paris for three days and covered many known places like Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame etc. We also did cruise ride and even visited Indian street in Paris, named Gare du Nord, which had every Indian thing available. From Paris we travelled to Venice and stayed there for two days. Our stay was booked on the canal, which gave an edge to the whole trip. We visited beautiful islands in Venice like Murano, Burano and Torcello. We also enjoyed the scenic beauty of Venice by foot. Did Gandora ride, which was one of the lifetime experience. In Venice we did some shopping too and relished mouth watering handmade chocolates too. From there we travelled to Florence and stayed there for two days. Florence is a perfect place to be discovered on foot, it has very fine and breathtaking architecture. We also did a one day Tuscany tour where we covered Vienna, Siena, vine tasting etc. We were lucky enough to locate and dine in Indian Restaurants in Florence. From Florence we visited our last stop Rome. We stayed in Rome for 3 days and were able to see some lovely places like Colosseum, Vatican City, Fountain Triveni etc. Siddhant helped us in planning everything, right from perfect commute to choosing proper stay location so that we could easily travel to/from station by foot. He also helped us in figuring out stay duration at each place and also helped us in deciding right flight/train timings so we don’t end up wasting a day in just commuting. It’s so important to plan things right when you are travelling by yourself (no group). It turned out to be the most amazing and memorable trip of our lives. And we intend to book our future trips with Siddhant and his team. Thank you Team Duniya Safari :)
