Photographer's Note

The Basilica of the Sacré Cœur is the original idea of constructing a church dedicated to the Sacred Heart developed in France after the Franco-Prussian War (1870). The church's design shows heavy Romano-Byzantine influence as it looks like a mosque rather than church.

A place next to the church is called Montmartre. Montmartre used to be a suburb of Paris, became a haven for artists of all sorts in the second half of the nineteenth century, and still retains a village-like atmosphere. It is built on a hill, with steep staircases, little parks, an overcrowded central square (Place du Tertre.
