The second flight of stairs and the grand entrance to the Basilique du Sacre-Coeur.

Begun in 1875 and finished in 1914, it was placed in this most bohemian neighborhood as a "symbol of the former struggle between the conservative Catholic old guard and the secular, republican radicals." (LP)

This is the highest point in Paris and the views are wonderful. I'll have to get a picture from Lill since I apparently don't have one. (I kept looking for the Eiffel Tower but couldn't find it!)
