Walk in Montmartre – Paris

6 December 2020

During the first end of lockdown in May, I took a little walk in Paris, enjoying the sun and seeing something other than my (residential) neighborhood. I opted for Montmartre which I had never visited!

  • The sacré cœur

It’s of course the must-see in Montmartre! The interior was closed but that did not prevent the atmosphere from being soaked up 😎 .

Needed to know that its construction is fairly recent, it was completed in 1923. It was voted “public interest” by the National Assembly to allow its construction and thus expropriate the landowners of the mound. Its architecture is debated (several architects take turns creating changes in styles). Personally I like it :). And there is a superb view of Paris!

  • The narrow streets and stairs of Montmartre

This is really what makes this neighborhood attractive for a walk. Its narrow streets with a “village” effect with its little houses! With of course la maison rose, a well-known Instagram restaurant!

You can also see the Passe muraille, a mill, etc..

Another famous aspect of Montmartre: its stairs! I admit that I went to park on the heights so I didn’t have to climb everything 😉 .

  • Dalida

Montmartre is also a must-see place for Dalida fans who come to pay homage to her. There is in particular a bust on a square. You can admire her old house. And besides, you can leave a note in a letterbox near her grave (at the Montmartre cemetery).

  • Street art

Another appreciable aspect of this district, there are some nice graphs!

There are in particular the famous mirrors with messages that can be found all over Paris 🙂 .
