Discover Montmartre

The Montmartre Hill is very famous for the Sacre-Coeur Basilica and its fantastic panoramic view over Paris, but is also a gastronomical and cultural area with an authentic charm. Very rural until a century ago, Montmartre is nowadays the last village in the big city of Paris.

Montmartre, primarily known for the white Basilica of Sacre Coeur as I mentioned before, is also famous as a nightclub district. The other church on this hill is Saint Pierre de Montmartre, which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded. The lovely old Moulin de La Galette, the last Montmartre windmill, inspired famous artists. Today, the many painters on Place du Tertre are always ready to sketch out your face, which can be a nice souvenir from Paris. They remind us of the many great artists like: Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh or Picasso who lived there in late 19th / early 20th centuries.

Walking at random across Montmartre, you will discover gardens, old houses, steep streets and staircases with splendid Paris views. In conclusion, forget the well-trodden path and open the door to another Montmartre, the last village of Paris, with its beautiful streets full of history, charm and happiness.
