The district of Montmartre encompasses a hill topped with the domed Basilica of the Sacré Cœur, at a height of about 130 meters. Initially outside city jurisdiction allowing for less reputable activity, including popular drinking establishments and cabarets, such as the Moulin Rouge and Le Chat Noir, this famous neighborhood gained quite a reputation. As an official historic sight, Montmartre has retained much of its character, making it a portal into Paris’ past. The area was also a gathering place for numerous bohemian Parisian artists and expatriates such as Edgar Degas, Gen Paul, Henri Matisse, Salvador Dali, Claude Monet, and Vincent van Gogh, Josephine Baker and more. Place du Tertre, a short walk from the basilica, carries on the tradition of art by hosting aspiring artists. This art and history filled neighborhood, adorned with cobblestone streets, local artists, cabarets, views, and historical sites is a perfect way to get a glimpse into Paris's rich cultural past.
