Photographer's Note

After the outbreak of the french-prussian war in 1870, two catholic businessmen sworn to built a church dedicated to the sacred Heart of Christ, if France managed to avoid the invasion. The 2 men lived to see Paris beeing saved after a long war and they begun the building of the Church in 1875. The church was completed in 1914 but the first world war and the german invasion prevented it from opening its gates till 1919.

The church stands on the top of the hill of Monmartre and is the second tallest sight after the Eiffel Tower.
