Built by the great Architect Paul Abadie in 1876 following the Roman-Byzantyne architectural style this amazing basilica tower was a clock tower back in the days. The sharp contrast of the tower took no time to stand out from the rest of the contemporary buildings in France, which were mostly built in a Romanesque style. The Savoyarde clock installed here is one of the world’s largest.
Due to its location on the Montmartre hill, the basilica towers over the city; its highest point is even higher than the top of the Eiffel Tower. Thanks to this prominent location, the Sacré-Coeur Basilica is one of the most noticeable landmarks in Paris.
What’s make this basilica even more interesting is that, The Sacré-Coeur Basilica’s ability to keep its beaming white colour even in the polluted air of a big city like Paris. This can be attributed to the Château-Landon stones which were used for the construction of the Sacré-Coeur. When it rains, the stones react to the water and secrete calcite, which acts like a bleacher.
