    Description :

    Sacré-Coeur, the Basilica on Sacred Heart of Jesus of Paris, has indeed a heart burried in it: the crypt vaults house a chapel containing the heart of Alexandre Legentil, the other one of the Basilica’s builders. Paul Abadie who managed to beat 77 fellow architects in the design competition designed the Basilica. The Basilica’s church bell, la Savoyarde, is one of the heaviest in the world weighing nearly 19 tons and the ovoid dome is the second-highest point in Paris after the Eiffel Tower.
