After a flight of almost ten hours, my back and legs were definitely tired. So, as I landed in Paris, I went straight to the hotel where my room was booked already. It was not too far from the
airport. By the time I checked into the hotel, it was already 11 in the night. Somehow I managed to eat something and sneaked inside the blanket. The next morning was definitely special for me,
as it was my first morning in Paris.
With the mission to explore Paris in mind, I quickly grabbed my phone and checked out the itinerary. In my list, the first destination was the Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre Paris, or the Basilica of the Sacred Hearts of Paris. After getting refreshed with a warm shower, I dressed myself up in the perfect French style, and moved towards the hotel’s lobby.
The Basilica of the Sacred Hearts of Paris is situated at the highest point in Paris, which is at the peak of the Montmartre. There is no doubt
that this Roman Catholic Church holds a very significant value in the history as well as tourism of Paris. It is a famous landmark and has strong cultural as well as political connection with
It was very kind of the hotel manager that he had already booked a cab for me. I had told him the night earlier about my first destination in Paris. The chauffer looked absolutely professional. It took more or less 20 minutes for the chauffer to take me to the destination. After paying him, I went straight to the main entrance of the Church.
It was so huge that the effect of its massiveness and beauty almost mesmerized me. Surrounded by lush green garden, the Basilica of the Sacred Hearts of Paris was designed by the architect Paul Abadie. During the exploration, somewhere I read that it was the year 1875 when the construction of this church started. It was so huge that it took me almost an hour to check out the entire structure. The designs on the walls were quite stunning, and I did take lots of pictures of the same.
