Quick facts

Not just a religious monument, the Sacre Coeur also marks the defeat of France in the Franco-Prussian War and the neighborhood home of the socialist Paris Commune of 1871.

The Sacre Coeur's travertine stone exudes calcite, ensuring the outside will remain white, despite exposure to weather and pollution.
