Address: 35 Rue Chevalier-de-la-Barre, Paris, Île-de-France 75018
District: 18th Arrondissement
Category: Landmarks

A hilltop church that became the alternative symbol of Paris for many (the “default” choice being the image of the Eiffel Tower. The views afforded by its location are indeed some of the best in the city and have become a postcard staple, along with the image of the church itself.

Many people are surprised to learn that it is a relatively recent addition to the Parisian skyline: the church was completed in 1914 (architect: Paul Abadie).
