250 A.D - St. Denis is decapitated on a hill, which would come to be known as the “Mount of the Martyr.” Years later, one of the most beautiful basilicas of the world would be erected on its crest. Over the years, its historical significance grows. Today, it is become a famous artist’s enclave and nightlife haven. Great names the likes of Salvador Dali, Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Pissaro and Vincent van Gogh have toiled here, creating the gifts so revered by the world today. Many of these great artists are buried in the nearby Montmarte cemetery. Knowing all this, thereis only one way to enjoy Montmartre-at leisure. A village-like charm entertains strollers who haven’t taken the funicular to the Basilica. An especially lovely treat is the nearby Place du Tertre, where contemporary artists take up easels along the street, much as their famous forerunners did. More risque tourists can peek in on the preferably-adults-only Boulevard de Clichy.
The Moulin Rouge isn’t too far away either. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg of delights this place has in store for a well informed guest. Thankfully, the hundred and fifty metre high hill and its surrounding areas are designated as historical heritages, and as such, development is tightly controlled. Browse Google maps and scout out in advance what you’d like to see. Or just go to the places I’ve pointed out in the details section below. The Montmartre is sheer atmosphere.
