Highlights of this walk include:
Sacré Cœur Basilica
Located at the highest point in the city, this white Roman Catholic basilica has dominated the Parisian skyline since 1914. French for "Basilica of the Sacred Heart", it was dedicated to the 58,000 who lost their lives in the Franco-Prussian War.
French for "Red Windmill", this famed cabaret, immortalized by the works by Toulouse-Lautrec, among others, was built in 1889 (the same year as the Eiffel Tower) by Josep Oller, who also owned the Paris Olympia music hall. It is located in the red-light district of Paris and is marked by the famous red windmill on its roof.
Place du Tertre
The charming artists' square where works are painted and sold on the spot. The Place du Tertre is a reminder of the time when Montmartre was truly the artists' quarter of Paris.
Dedicated to the work of the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, this museum contains over 300 of Salvador Dali's original drawings, cartoons, sculptures as well as a few of his paintings.
The Montmartre Vineyards
One of the most secret gardens in Paris is an authentic Parisian vineyard and source of the famed Le Clos Montmartre.
A popular tourist destination, it is the final resting place for many famous artists who lived and worked in the Montmartre area, such as Dalida, Edgar Degas, Adolf Sax, Emile Zola and Jacques Offenbach.
Le Lapin Agile
French for "The Nimble Rabbit", the famous haunt of the resident artists of Montmartre in the early 1900's. Pablo Picasso's 1905 oil painting "At the Lapin Agile" helped to make this cabaret world famous.
Three of the original fourteen windmills remain today. In the past, Montmartre was covered in windmills. They helped Parisians determine the direction of the wind each hour and served to break down materials from the factories.
Le Bateau-Lavoir was a dingy block of buildings in Montmartre. It became famous because at the turn of the 20th century a group of outstanding artists lived and rented artistic studios there, the most famous being Pablo Picasso.
