Above: A view over Paris from the front of Sacré-Cœur Basilica.

Below: Picture 1 shows a bird house in the parkette near the Basilica.

Picture 2 is the front of the Sacré-Cœur Basilica, begun in 1875 and completed in 1914. Made of gypsum, it only gets whiter with age,
but it is being eaten away by pollution and acid rain, and will be destroyed in decades unless there is expensive intervention.

Picture 3 is the ceiling of the alter area of Sacré-Cœur Basilica, with it's ceiling tile mosaic of Jesus.
Pictures 5, 6, 7 and 9 are among the ornate tile work that Sacré-Cœur Basilica is known for.
Picture 10 shows the nave of the Basilica.
Picture 11, in front of the Basilica.
Picture 12 shows a picture of Sacré-Cœur under construction, March 10, 1882. The grounds have changed. A lot.
