The Sacre-Coeur Basilica is located on top of the hill of Montmartre.
During construction, a staircase was discovered that led to an ancient crypt that was said to have been sanctified by Saint Denis.
The Sacre-Coeur Basilica was built with money from private donations.
On this hill, in the 3rd century, bishop Saint-Denis, the priest Saint Rusticus and the deacon Saint Eleutherius were martyred, giving the hill its name “Mount of Martyrs”.

A place of worship from ancient times
Legend has it that Montmarte Hill has been a place of worship since ancient times. It is said that the Druids of ancient Gaul worshiped here, the Romans built here a temple dedicated to Mars and Mercury, to the Basilica that stands today.
Do not miss the Souvenir Shop
Inside the Sacre-Coeur Basilica, there is a very nice souvenir shop. I found here to buy unique religious things that I did not find elsewhere. I bought unique wooden icons, candles and statues for the ladies in my family.
