Montmartre & Sacre Coeur

Sacre Coeur - Key Dates 1875 : Laying of the foundation stone, and then several months work on the foundations : underpinning pits 33 meters deep are needed. Filled up, they become the pillars on which the edifice rests. Without these pillars, the Basilica would sink into the clay.
1878 : Work begins on the crypt
1881 : Work begins on the Basilica itself
1914 : All is ready for the consecration including the tower containing the "Savoyarde" a 19 tons bell.
1919 : Consecration on the 16th of October 1919
