Montmartre is a hill in the north of Paris. It's primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Cœur on its summit. The Basilica of the Sacré Cœur, literally translated as the "Basilica of the Sacred Heart," is a Roman Catholic basilica, well-known for its white-colored structure. Montmartre is the district of artists. Many famous artists used to have studios or worked around the neighborhood.


Montmartre in contemporary day is shown to the world in a 2001 French romantic comedy film called Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain (The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain) or simply known as Amélie, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and starring Audrey Tautou. It is probably the most well-known French contemporary film of all time.
