Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica. A popular landmark, the basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city.

Though not large, this was an incredible church. A mosaic in the apse, entitled Christ in Majesty, is among the largest in the world. It’s a long walk up the hill to the basilica, but worth every step. Photography and video is strictly forbidden inside and they take it very seriously. What a shame, since it was probably the prettiest church in Paris.
