Sacre coeur and Montmartre.

We took the metro in direction to Sacre Coeur at about 9.30 in the morning. When we arrived, we were at the bottom of the hill where Sacre Coeur is. We took an elevator since the view from there was nice and the steps were too long.

The basilica's construction was decided by the National Assembly in 1873 as a religious building in perpetuity in tribute to the memory of the many French who had lost their lives during the Franco-Prussian War. The basilica has the same style as any other big Catholic church or cathedral.Captura de pantalla 2016-05-15 a las 10.35.01 p.m..png

Afterwards, we had free time to go to souvenir shops nearby and have lunch. The place was an artistic spot, since there were plenty of painters doing portraits and selling their work. The gastronomical offer was very varied as well.

Next, we headed towards Moulin Rouge, the world famous cabaret built in 1889 by the Spanish Josep Oller. Moulin Rouge is situated in the most famous "red neighborhood" of Paris, Pigalle, which is at the feet of Montmartre.

The last "cultural stop" was in the renowned department store Galerie La Fayette, which is known for having the most luxurious brands in fashion and jewelry. The architecture is grand and the building sefign is fool of small and beautiful details.
