The dome was built in Romanesque style and is another major symbol of Paris, so don't miss it. You can wander around the basilica and admire the beautiful gardens in the Montmartre area.

There are so many tiny and adorable streets close to the basilica that you can't get enough of them. Don't forget your camera at home and neither the charger for it, as I did when I was in Paris.

Address:
Parvis du Sacré Coeur, 75018 Paris, France

Opening Hours:
Mon-Sun: 10:00 - 17:00
