Overview

Take a self-guided visit to the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Montmartre, an accessible Catholic church that is open to tourists free of charge. 


The Sacré-Coeur Basilica is one of the most famous monuments in Paris, standing on top of Montmartre and offering a panoramic view of the city. There are no guided tours of the Basilica as it is primarily a place of worship, but you are welcome to visit if you respect the guidelines. The dome of the church is open and is a great place to take photos and admire the Parisian skyline. 


Although the Basilica is set on top of a steep hill, it is accessible to visitors with reduced mobility who can climb the hill in the funicular. A wheelchair-accessible entrance is available at the side of the Basilica, and the grounds of the Church are mostly paved with smooth cobbles. Accessible parking spots can be found at the rear of the Church, and there are accessible bathrooms onsite. However, as it is a place of worship, service dogs are not permitted. The crypt and the dome are both accessed by sets of stairs and are therefore not accessible for wheelchair users.
