From the Sacred Heart

This church was one of the most perplexing sites in Paris. Outside the mood was like a carnival. Street vendors hawk their wares and everyone shows up with a bottle of wine, champagne, or a six pack. Just down the hill in Montmartre are brothels, night clubs and sex shops. You can hear the singing and street performers even when you walk into the basilica. Inside is one of the best churches in Paris – and that’s saying something. Pictures inside are strictly forbidden, but here’s a link to a blogger who DID take pictures inside: http://travelbyanna.wordpress.com/2012/06/30/europe-2012-day-22-paris/

Here’s my pictures from outside. The view of Paris doesn’t come across in the pictures, but it’s pretty awe-inspiring.
