Sacré-Coeur

After lunch at the flea market (it was new food, not antique) we went off to see Sacré-Coeur. It is a new Basilica started in the 1880's with much politics about the land and the funding and didn't get finished until 1914 and was dedicated in 1919 after the war was over. It's on a nice site on a hill overlooking much of Paris. We didn't go inside since it was Sunday and there were masses going on. There were good size crowds there. And outside we all watched an acrobatic performance - two videos below.
