Sacre-Coeur Cathedral--Paris

Posted on Apr 23, 2005  |   1798 views  

Without question, my favorite place in Paris is in Montmartre, in the Sacre-Coeur cathedral. Sacre-Coeur speaks to me; many of the larger cathedrals are lovely, but they almost feel commercial after awhile. There's a legend that during the persecutions of Christians, St. Denis was beheaded in Montmartre, and miraculously walked all the way to the top of the "Mount of the Martyrs". Apparently, I'm not the only one who feels at peace inside Sacre-Coeur.
