Sacre-Couer is a Roman Catholic church, the basilica is located at the summit of Montmartre, the highest point in the city. It was designed by Paul Abadie with construction starting in 1875, finishing in 1914. It was consecrated after the end of World War I in 1919.
We have visited this church on several occasion by going up the steps, going up he cable car and taking the winding path from rear approach. We have also visited inside the church whilst Mass was being held. Because the church is on such a high point, it also affords glorious views of Paris, another good reason to visit with a good zoom camera.
Its also a landmark which is visible from many other parts of the city, on this occasion it was also visible from out hotel window.
It is definitely a must see in a visit to Paris.
