  • St Pierre de Montmartre is a small church which is just a few metres from the Place du Tertre, Sacré-Coeur path, is worth a visit and has piped music which invites to meditation.

  • This is the quite older sister to Sacre Coeur. But it's worth a visit with a special atmosphere and without as many tourists. Not fancy or fussy but worth a visit.  more »
  • The Church of Saint Peter of Montmartre is located on the mound, near the sacred heart. The entrance is near the place du Tertre at the No. 2 street of the mount Cenis. It was established on the site of a Merovingian Basilica dedicated to Saint Denis. The construction of the present Church date 1147 and in Romanesque style in the first place. She reuses elements of the primitive building such as antique style columns; At the same time a Royal Benedictine Abbey was built next door. The work hanging in length the built-in nave of the early Gothic style during the 12 th century with a reconstruction of the apse in primitive Gothic style devoid of frills as we see it today. Construction continues, the vaults of the nave and the crossroads of the transept are in flamboyant Gothic style and date from 1470. After many setbacks, the Church is in poor condition and in 1896 it closed after a few unfinished restoration attempts. It's between 1900 and 1905 that an ultimate rescue operation is undertaken to give it its appearance today Montmartre name comes from the original name of the hill called "Martyrs' following the beheading by the Romans, Christians like St. Denis, first bishop of Lutetia and his companions in the year 250. The Church would have built close to this place of torment outside has a square bell tower in section neo-style novel, an apse of style romano Gothic can be seen from the side, Cardinal Guibert Street. An old cemetery for the nuns of the Abbey, is located to the left of the entrance, but it cannot be visited. In 1765, time of the baroque, a façade of simple classic style we see today, is plated on the original at the level of the main entrance. The doors in bronze of the façade, decorated with frescoes, date from 1980 and are the work of artist Italian Tommaso Gismondi in 1792 the Royal Abbey was sold and dismantled. There is nothing today of this building. In 1876 the sacred heart is built next to the Church Interior has still of very old and very beautiful capitals and columns, some of which are of Merovingian and Romanesque styles. But no span of the nave are alike, each with style and structure special so the Church has been repeatedly revised. The magnificent polychrome stained glass abstract, are Max Ingrand, and date back to 1953, and tell the life of Peter the apostle. The baptismal dates back to renaissance and is one of the oldest of Paris I have a lot of fun to visit this church which demonstrates the willingness of men to maintain a building since ancient times. Access to the Church can be done by the metro station "Antwerp" then using the funicular and take left into rue Saint Eleutherus.
