Set atop of a hill 130 metres above ground, this Roman-Byzantine basilica is known for its outstanding white colour, the city's largest mosaic, and a beautiful crypt. It's considered the most iconic monument in Paris, a great viewing platform for the city's skylines, and also a popular summer gathering point for street musicians and the local youth, who love hanging out and drinking beer on the stairs leading to the church. At night the building is particularly charming when numerous lamps enhance its whiteness, and when one can enjoy the city's night panoramas.
