Worth a stop on the way to Sacre Coeur

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.

We literally stumbled across this church on a night out in Montmartre, while strolling around the area after dinner. We had never even heard of this church and just felt drawn in by it when passing by. And we didn't regret it! There was hardly anyone inside, apart from three parishioners singing a prayer, which gave the church an even... More

The Church of Saint Peter of Montmartre is one of the oldest surviving churches in Paris, but the lesser known of the two main churches in Montmartre, the other being the more famous 19th-century Sacre Cœur Basilica. While we were strolling up to Sacre Coeur Basilica we decided to stop here. It is well worth stopping to see!!! Beautiful inside... More

If you go to visit Sacre Coeur, and you will go take a small detour less than a few minutes to visit also St Pierre. It is a beautiful church and if you are lucky and can get inside you will be able to see some amazing mosaics.

Beautifully simple inside. Quiet. About a block from Sacre Couer and worth the time. It would be nice to see the cemetery, but it was closed. Definitely worth 15-30 minutes.

A beautiful site and an equally stunning view of Paris city. Walk through the inside of the main hall and experience some amazing mosaic and stained glass, designed by popular and famous artisans of the time. If you're feeling adventurous, take the rooftop walk - it's a wonderful experience

We went in here for some peace and quiet from the busyness of the rest of Montmartre. It is a little oasis of calm. There are beautiful stained glass windows; places to light candles; an amazing wooden sculpture of Jesus and a fantastic altar that looks like a work of art. Definitely worth a look and a free place for... More

This is an amaizing area located in "mount marte", a sacred place where a fantastic and historical temple was built. The view from the top is astonishing. Take some snacks with you, take an spot in the stairs after visiting the temple and enjoy the view of Paris!

You can spend days upon days in Paris & never see everything you'd like to see. If you are there, however, it is worth your while to add St-Pierre de Monmarte to your list of 'to-do's'.

While the white basilica is beautiful, the cozy St. Pierre is much older, and a nice stop when walking around Montmartre... right on the way to the Artist square.

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
