浪漫城之旅-圣心教堂 *Trip to Basilique Sacre Coeur (23 May 08)

圣心教堂是我们在巴黎的最后一站。由于圣心教堂建在山上,到了目的地后我们又得再排队搭吊车上山。乘坐缆车需要付一张的Metro车票的哦!还好我们通常都是买日卡或是一整本的车票,所以我们只要用已经付了费的卡就可以了。年轻有劲的不妨用走路的方式走上山,可以有不一样的体验。我们上了缆车后,头一抬就可以看到圣心教堂了。

当初建立圣心教堂的目的是为了纪念58,000在法国与波斯战争中殉职的兵士们。如今它成为巴黎的其中一个教堂,一个当地人相信象征耶稣圣心的教堂。除了教堂,最吸引游客来这里的是可以站在山上看到一整片的巴黎。当天不但游客多,也有表演者在梯级间表演唱歌,表演者还和游客们互动,你一句我一句,很好玩!就这样,我们结束了巴黎之旅。


Basilique Sacre Coeur was our last visit in Paris. This cathedral was built up on a hill. The actual purpose of building this holy place is to serve as a memorial for 58,000 armies who faught and died in Franco-Prussian War. Today, it serves as a popular landmark in Paris and people believe it is built dedicated to the sacred heart of Jesus.

Due to Scare Coeur is built up high on a hill, besides following the staircases, visitors could also take the cable car to reach to the top. However each ride requires a Metro ticket. Luckily we always bring either a daily Metro Pass or a whole book of Metro tickets.

Although it was late, many were still remain up on the hill. I guess these people must be waiting for sunset. Frankly speaking, this is the best place to view the sunset in Paris. Many may like to spend their evening on Eiffel Tower, but if I were given another chance to visit Paris, I will definately waiting for sunset at Sacre Coeur.


Facinating view of Paris. Many were waiting for sunset...
