This is the same as the Sacred Heart of Jesus, spent some time looking for another church but after going up and down the street a couple of times discovered it was the same. Great renovation and well worth a look.

This basilica is the same as the church of the sacred heart of Jesus (which I have already reviewed) It is pretty, but in a crowded area opposite the railway station.

It is a good church close to railway station but not clean as such. It is not maintained properly. Good to stoop here for 10-15 min to see.

The peace, the serenity and the spirituality combined in the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus are indescribably good.

I walked up to the Sacre Coeur from Blanche Metro; if you are going to do this wear some good shoes. Walking through the narrow streets was interesting and fun although the higher you get the higher the prices for the tourists. The Sacre Coeur itself is beautiful although the Interior is not as interesting as the exterior. The view... More
