View from a window- the Basilique Sacré-Coeur, Paris

Location: Basilique Sacré-Coeur from Musee d’Orsay, Paris, France (48° 51′ 36″ N, 2° 19′ 37.2″ E)

The Basilique Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) is a Roman Catholic church and familiar landmark in Paris. Apart from its beauty and significance in Paris’s history, its location at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in Paris makes it a very visible landmark. As such it can be seen from many locations. This photo was taken from the 4th floor window of the Musee d’Orsay. The basilica appears to just tower over all the other buildings. However this may change with the Paris council approval of high-rise construction in the city.
