The Ramey Village, in the heart of the Montmartre hill
The basilica of the Sacred Heart
The basilica of the Sacred Heart of Montmartre, located right on top of the Montmartre hill, is a major Parisian religious building, built following the post-war period of 1870.
Peaking at 83 meters, the forecourt of the Sacred Heart offers a breathtaking scenery of the city of Paris.
Inside the building, the ceiling is decorated with the largest mosaic in France, measuring 480 square meters. A few steps away, you can find the Place du Tertre, the district of Abbesses with small steep streets; the Moulin Rouge is in the direct vicinity.
“Au Lapin Agile”
Poetry, French and classical song
“Au Lapin Agile” is a Paris cabaret located on the Montmartre hill. Previously called “Cabaret of Assassins”, it is one of the oldest cabarets in Paris. Established in the second half of the nineteenth century, bought by Aristide Bruant in 1913, it was one of the favorite meeting places of the bohemian artists of the early twentieth century, from Max Jacob to Pablo Picasso, also with Roland Dorgelès, Francis Carco , Blaise Cendrars or Pierre Mac Orlan. It is still in business as of now.
Passage de la Sorcière
Maquis de Montmartre
The Witch’s Rock is one of the last remnant of the “Maquis de Montmartre”. According to legend, an old woman lived in the large mansion facing the rock; the alley was then renamed by the neighbourhood’s kids. Originally “Passage de la Sourcière”, due to a very close ressemblance to the french term for witch, it went on to be called “Passage de la Sorcière”. The children back then said it was more fitting to the persona as well as the strange shape of the rock, although it has now been identified as an ancient well.
