  • Exploring the inner bounds of the proud capital city of France should not exclude thorough analysis of the world-famous Sacré-Cœur. Sitting upon the tallest hill of Paris (Hill Montmartre), it serves like a proud beacon, visible from most parts of the city. The interior of the basilica is decorated with stained glass windows and a huge mosaic representing Jesus in white with his arms open, entitled “Christ in Majesty”. Dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Christ, it includes the following two notable attractions: the Savoyarde bell (the heaviest in France with its 19 tons) and a massive pipe organ built by the renowned Cavaillé-Coll. The 5 domes and the white aspect of the structure make it look like a jaw-dropping oriental castle. Oh, and let us not forget about the fact that the exterior is decorated with the statues of King Saint Louis and Saint Joan of Arc.
