For over 200 years the name "Montmartre" is associated with the artists.
Today, street artists thrive here mainly due to the tourists.

Montmartre

is located on a high hill, which is quite far from the center of

Paris

, but it is one of the main "tourist sights" of the city. The famous cabaret "

Moulin Rouge

" is also located in Montmartre.

It was built under a vow given by individuals on the eve of the Franco-Prussian War. Two merchants pledged to finance the construction of the basilica if France wins the war. In spite of the long siege of Paris, the attack was repulsed, and in 1875 the construction had been started. The basilica turned out to be impressive both inside and outside, and it has become one of the most significant sites of the Roman Catholic Church. The interiors of the Basilica are forbidden to photograph.
