Montmartre

The Legendary Montmartre

Montmartre is a famous hillock in Paris topped by the well recognizable white cupolas of the Sacré Cœur. It attracts crowds of Paris’ guests by quite special bucolic landscapes and legendary history. Monmartre retains its look of a village in a big city with its delightful sinuous streets, its mills, steep stone steps leading to open terraces. It was known as martyrs’ mound after St. Denis, first bishop of Paris, was beheaded here by the Romans. Throughout the 19th century Monmartre inspired numerous artists, writers, poets and musicians who were drawn to free-and-easy way of life on the hill. Among them Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh, Picasso and many others. The hill keeps this tradition and features lots of artists working on the Tertre square.
