Just a few blocks of the Basilica, is located “Place du Tertre”, an overcrowded square where the most important artists lived: Picasso, Vlamenck, Derain, Soutine, Modigliani, Van Gogh. Today a lot of contemporary artists set up their easels and tempt passers-by with their works of art.

There are so many great places to explore in this neighborhood that it would prove tough to cover all of them. Many of the same artists painted the Moulin de la Galette in various conditions. Now it is a beautiful restaurant.

Place des Abbesses is like the heart of Montmartre and where you will find “Le mur des je t’aime”, designed by Frederick Baron who collected himself in Paris more than 1,500 declarations of love in any language. Don’t forget to visit the square with someone that you really love, at list once! Of course I went to the wall with my husband 🙂
