“Beautiful church and views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Lovely church and free to go in (love that) it was a good place to look around and there were even nuns singing beautiful. Only downside is that there are the most disgusting people at the entrance gates and as you walk up who will try to sell you crap. They are very aggressive and will try to touch you, one even tried to trip me over, I was so upset and scarred. Really mared the whole experience. I think the Church should have control of the gardens or the police should be allowed to monitor the park for safety. My advice is to come in from the back way via monmartte (sp) if you can, lovely part of Paris.

“Great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Church itself was okay. The view itself made me come back again and again. Make sure you take a look at the little roads on the hill. You might find a small shop you like.

“Such a walk for just ok!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This was a hike and I mean hike to get to the church. With two small children and constant in the stroller and out of the stroller, picking up and putting down, I guess I was expecting more, but it was just ok. I think the best church is Notre Dame you have things to see in there for days. it was a quick walk around and then out I went!
