The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Paris in France

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Paris, commonly known as Sacre -Coeur Basilica is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica. It is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in Paris, France. It is also a popular landmark in Paris. It is located on the top of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city.

I took this image during my second visit in Paris with a friend last August 2010.

The construction of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Paris begun in June 16, 1875.

I should use Nikon binoculars to have a better look of this historical building. We just stayed in this square watching the basilica because we don't have much time for going up to the hill for sightseeing. I also read that taking pictures inside the basilica is forbidden.
