Sacre Coeur

Sacre Coeur

Monica, her dad, and I took a short break from the hospital and went up to Sacre Coeur on top of a hill on the North end of Paris. The church or basilica that sits atop this hill is pretty magnificent and with the exception of the Eiffel Tower it boasts the best view of Paris in town. There is a set of steps leading up to the top of the landing where the church is and it is really quite interesting and the view is spectacular on a clear day. If you want to get your portrait done by the artists who are wandering around ask to see a picture that they’ve already done or go up behind a couple and watch to see if you like what they do. We got a chance to watch two artist’s sketch two separate people and one turned out okay and the other was spectacular and very professional quality.
