Additional Location Information
Set on a hill with an elevation of 130 metres, the Montmartre area looks out grandly over all of Paris.
The name Montmartre comes from "Mont des Martyrs". The bishop St. Denis, the priest Rustique, and the Archdeacon Eleuthére were all decapitated there around the year 250. In the twelfth century Benedictine monks built a monastery near Rue des Abesses which later became the seat of a powerful abbey. The Montmartre area was the centre of much activity during the Paris Commune in 1871. Despite the resistance of the people of Montmartre the area remained under Federal control from March 18 until May 23. The end of the nineteenth century saw Montmartre become the centre of artistic life in Paris and the model of a free, bohemian existence. Many artists from Berlioz to Picasso, lived, worked, and played here. These creative spirits, and their caféthe Lapin Agile, helped keep this area the city's intellectual and artistic centre up until the First World War. In 1873 the National Assembly declared plans to erect a grand Romano-Byzantine Basilica dedicated to the Sacred Heart for public usage. Construction began in 1876 from the design plans of Abadie. He intended the basilica to echo the Cathedral of St. Front in Périgueux which he had restored. Thanks to public donations, SacréCoeur was completed in 1910 and consecrated in 1919.
Sacré Coeur measures 100 metres in length, 50 metres in height and is crowned by a distinctive 83 metre high dome. The 84 metre high bell tower houses an 18.5 ton bell with an 850kg clapper. The interior of the church contains treasures of its own: marble sculptures, stained-glass windows and mosaics. Standing on the stairs of the Sacré Coeur you can take in a panoramic view across all of Paris.
Around the Place du Tertre you can see that Montmartre was once a small village within a big city. It is one of the few places left in Paris where one can imagine the city as it was in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is truly a unique neighbourhood in the City of Light.

Lovely two-level, spacious, well-decorated apartment with all the amenities of home--plus a view of Paris that's incomparable. Excellent bathrooms, wonderful kitchen. Wonderful artwork. This apartment has been renovated to the highest standards--with no shortcuts and nothing done "on the cheap." Very close to many delicious, well-priced neighborhood restaurants. Jeremy provided extremely responsive reservations service, and alex was the perfect driver. Just know this section of Paris is for the very physically fit.
