Sacré Coeur – France

Sacre Coeur.jpg

Located in the historically rich neighborhood of Montmartre, the Sacré Coeur is the second most visited building in Paris, France. It was built in 1873 and stands for “Basilica of the Sacred Heart”. It’s a great place for a panoramic view of the city, as well as to gain some insight into the historic significance of the Franco-Prussian war which lead to the creation of this building. Fun fact: Did you know that it also contains the great bell called “Savoyarde”, which weighs 19 tons and is one of the world’s heaviest bells? Cool eh!

Fantastic shot by Lesia.
