Montmartre, a 130 meters (427 feet) hill, is located in north Paris. It’s one of the historic district. The word Montmartre is translated to mean “mountain of the martyr” and was derived from the martyrdom of Saint Denis – the bishop of Paris. It is the centre of art, which actually during the mid to late 1800s, artists also began calling Montmartre home. Many artists worked and had studio in here, such as Salvador Dali, Claude Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh, Renoir and Picasso. So, you can imagine how artistic this place.
Beside the sea of arts, what I like about Montmartre is it has retained much of its character and village-like charm.
This historical restaurant first opened in 1881. When I came to the restaurant, it took about 12 minutes waiting for a table, however the food that I had taste so good. Parfait!
The best way to enjoy Montmartre is by walking, so you won’t miss the interesting spots. You can’t get less exercise to be here. Fun and healthy at the same time 🙂
Will I come back to visit this place? yes
