Basilique du Sacré Cœur de Montmartre The Merry-go-round ( Italian-built carousel, whose painted ceiling features Venetian canals, but whose stampeding horses, made of plastic, boast pink and blue eagle feathers and an American Wild West theme )

Slide4:

In Paris, carousels are so much a part of the land-scape that you find them not just in parks and squares but inside super-markets and fast-food restaurants like McDonald's

Slide10:

©Yann Arthus-Bertrand Though today the basilica is asserted to be dedicated in honor of the 58,000 who lost their lives during the war. At the top of the Butte Montmartre, it has one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the capital, from 130 metres above ground. In a Roman-Byzantine style, the Sacré Coeur is recognizable by its white colour.

Slide13:

This campanile (84m tall) holds the most famous bell in the world: the Savoyarde, a 19 tons bell that was offered by the four dioceses of Savoie and forged on may 13th of 1891 in Annecy by the Paccard firm. Twenty eight horses were needed to bring it…

Slide16:

Statue of Joan of Arc by Hippolyte Jules Lefèbvre (1863-1935)

Slide17:

Despite the pollution, the Basilica remain white. Actually, the stones that were used for the construction (from Châ-teau-Landon, department of Seine et Marne) produce a white substance – calcin – whenever it is raining. As a consequence, the parts that are protected from the rain are the darkest

Enjoying the immensity of the city from the top The highest point of the hill is one of the best spots for panoramic view of Paris, with a breathtaking view over the city light The view from the butte looking towards Centre Georges Pompidou

Slide30:

Boulevard Rochechouart Montmartre

Slide31:

Boulevard Rochechouart Montmartre

Slide33:

Notre-Dame de Lorette

Slide35:

The great statue/sculpture, Le Passe-Muraille (the Passer-Through-Walls), situated in a place named after Marcel Aymé. Le Passe-Muraille is the title of a story by Marcel Aymé (1902-1967) about a man named Dutilleul who discovers that he can (you guessed it) walk through walls

Slide36:

Jean Marais, French actor and sculptor, immortalized the wall-pass in 1989 in the wall in front of Marcel Aymé's house

Slide37:

The Passe-muraille, fixed in the wall of the Place Marcel Aymé, is a statue realized by the actor Jean Marais, in homage to the work of the writer Marcel Aymé

Slide38:

During the Belle Époque from 1872 to 1914, many notable artists lived and worked in Montmartre, where the rents were low and the atmosphere congenial. Downhill to the southwest is the red-light district of Pigalle. That area is, today, largely known for a wide variety of stores specializing in instruments for rock music. There are also several concert halls, also used for rock music. The actual Moulin Rouge theatre is also in Pigalle

Slide41:

Named the 'Mount of Martyrs' after the martyrdom of St-Denis, Montmartre is now a mount of tourism: it is second only to the Eiffel Tower as a destination for international visitors

Slide43:

Pigalle, the city’s red-light district, is shedding its seedy reputation: it was the core of the Parisian sex trade for decades. Though sleaze still exists here, the cabarets that once occupied rue des Martyrs are being taken over by music clubs, such as Le Divan du Monde at No. 75

Slide49:

Among the cabaret survivors is Chez Michou on rue des Martyrs, home of Parisian drag artists, and the Moulin Rouge, which has long since cleaned up its act and is now more cheesy than sleazy
