Sacré-Coeur

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, commonly known as Sacred Heart Basilica and often simply Sacred Heart, is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in Paris, La France. A popular landmark, the basilica is located at the summit of Butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city.

The Sacred Heart is a double monument, political and cultural, both a national penance for the defeat of France in the 1870 Franco-Prussian War and the socialist Paris Commune of 1871 crowning its most rebellious neighborhood, and an embodiment of conservative moral order, publicly dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which was an ever-popular view of a loving and sympathetic Christ.

The Sacred Heart Basilica was designed by Paul Abadie. Construction began in 1875 and was finished in 1914. It was consecrated after the end of World War I in 1919.
