  • This is a Catholic Church we visited before we climb up the hill to Sacré-Cœur. It is a smaller church with a dome, a courtyard with a modern Christmas nativity scene in a plastic bubble.  more »
  • Although this church is far older than Sacre Couer you can understand why it is overshadowed by it's far larger brethren. However, you can really sense the history here and it feels more...  more »

  • Beautiful church steeped in rich history. A student/volunteer with excellent English gave us a fascinating tour. It wasn't busy the day we were there. I think this gem could be overlooked in favour of Sacre Coeur. Keep an eye out for it, you won't be disappointed.
  • What a treat for us to stumble upon this wonderful chapel! Like many tourists, we came to Montmartre to visit Sacre Coeur, and yes, that was nice, but this was totally unplanned, completely caught us by surprise, and blew our little minds. This is the oldest chapel in the area, but still so well kept, anybody can just walk in without paying an entrance fee and get the same spiritual vibe as Sacre Coeur. This one is less visited, and probably lesser known, but that doesn't mean it's any less beautiful. We totally enjoyed the interior space, the decorations, and the courtyard where there is a metal door hiding the monks' quarters behind it. I probably would recommend this place over the Sacre Coeur any day.
