Photographer's Note

The wether is great but with too many tourists.
I chose first to ignore them.
Here are some pictures of this well-known (too ?) building.

Little history.
The basilica Sacr Coeur was built after the 1870 disaster.
It was began in 1876 and finished in 1919.
The dome and the bell tower dominate the hill of 80m and offer a splendid panorama until 30km.
Inside the campanile, la savoyarde, is one of the biggest known bell with 19 tonnes.
