The Sacre Coeur Basilica in Paris France

The Sacre Coeur Basilica was constructed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and stands as a place of worship and a popular tourist attraction.

There are plenty of beautiful things to see when you visit the Sacre Coeur.

The exterior of the basilica is built in the Roman Byzantine style from Travertine stone and one of the very first things that you will notice are the bronze statues of Joan of Arc and King Saint Louis IX.

Another prominent feature is the Savoyarde bell, which weighs in at around 19 tons.  There are also mosaics such as Christ in Majesty and another entitled Christ's Passion.

When you visit the Sacre Coeur Basilica you should definitely go to the top of the dome for an incredible view of the city, but another popular area is the meditation garden which features a beautiful fountain and is a tranquil restful place that can bring calm to one's soul.

So whether you enjoy French history or are going to the Basilica to pray, you are no doubt going to enjoy your time at this beautiful and sacred place.
