The hill on the northern side of Paris with the SacrГ© Coeur basilica at the top. There used to be a village, which annexed into Paris only in 1860.

In the beginning of the 20th century Montmartre became wildly fashionable among bohemian public. Г‰mile Zola, Hector Berlioz, Renoir, Degas, Van Gogh and many others lived in Montmartre.
