Behind Sacre Coeur

Most people only see the front of Sacre Coeur but it is also very interesting from behind. I wandered around Montmatre with Lisa who lives in this area. We had a gorgeous day with blue skies and sunshine and even got a little hot.


Lovely white wysteria in a garden behind the basillica.


Sacre Coeur always looks so great against a blue sky.


Saint Georges slaying a dragon.


Artists wander around offering to do your portrait. This pretty girl took one of them up on it.

  1. Love your photos, always. Missed not spending time in Paris this trip….but, just might make a long weekend trip to Paris alone, soon. That would be fun!!! Wisteria always looks so perfect and dramatic.

  2. So THAT”S what that droopy, flowering tree is called! PG and I spotted it in yellow on our walk through a park near his apartment, and although we both admired it, we had no idea what it was. Now I know: wisteria. Merci, Linda!

  3. The wisteria is stunning!

    Interesting to see St. George…the wings and the armor…somehow they don’t seem to go together.

  4. Bonjour,

    Steve and I climbed the hill up to the back of Sacre Coeur on one of our visits. I really loved the little park. People were pickniquing and children were running around in total bliss. Are the lilacs in bloom yet?

  5. Hi Linda… I hadn’t been to London for a while, at least not that area.. we had lots of fun. Look at Leesa’s blog.. different areas on there.

    I am not sure we went directly behind the Sacre Coeur , but I know that we walked around little streets. But now I know, can go again.

    My friend and I have also climbed to the very top of the Dome… I don’t think many people have done this.
