  • A must-see when visiting the Basilica of the sacred heart. There are many restaurants (very touristy, so do not expect culinary wonders), the souvenir shops in shambles and painters (figuristes). A typical square of Paris.

  • A beautiful place to see artists doing their thing. But some future famous art pieces maybe? This place looks as if it’s been stuck in time and a beautiful place it is too. The food and drink establis...  more »

  • A really cool place to look at art. Ive included some pics from the area, we decided to climb the millions (obviously an over exaggeration but you get my drift) right to the top and the views looking after Paris was beautiful. Once we got to Place du Tertre there was a little Christmas market where we could purchase hand made art. It was a beautiful little market with lights everywhere. Next to it was a lovely huge cathedral (see pictures) and there was a Starbucks right in the market place too! Awesome for the coffee lovers! If you go at Christmas time like we did, you will find the most beautiful smelling fresh mulled wine for sell just for 2€! Brilliant!. During my stay, this little hidden gem was a lovely find and one of my favourite places to visit. I wish I was able to buy some artwork! Definitely would of been worth it!
  • For all Parisian lovers, this is the beautiful place not to be missed! A great part of our history set in a hill. Very touristic of course, but how could you avoid this area? Go in a French brasserie, or take a ice cream, a coffee or nothing, but go to admire Paris from one of its "roof".
  • We loved this area in paris. Lots of artists. Lots of beautiful paintings that i enjoyed looking at by couldn't afford or even if i could there was no way to get it home in my luggage! Some artists are a little pushy to do a drawing of you, you can talk them down a bit in price though. We loved the little souvenir shops around as well.
  • If you don't visit this place during your stay in Paris, you pretty miss what it's all that makes this city so romantic and artistic. I prefer the quiet hours, like early in the morning. Drink your cafe while watching the local artists painting the atmosphere of the place on the canvas. Enjoy the moment.
  • Loved this little square. The atmosphere was great, soft jazz playing from a café across the street, slightly raining and beautiful stars. That moment there was pretty magical. I bet this place looks awesome during the day too. I would definitely go back, and maybe grab a beer next time.
