    Tips to stay safe at Sacre Coeur


    The Sacre Coeur is one of Paris’ most beautiful and popular landmarks. Situated at the city’s highest point, the Butte Montmartre’s summit, it also offers a stunning view across the city.

    Possible risks at the Sacre Coeur

    Unfortunately, the area surrounding the Sacre Coeur Basilica has a reputation for being a favourite haunt for pickpockets, bracelet-scammers and varying types of vendors, snatch-and-grab robbers, and over-enthusiastic sketch artists. More often than not, incidents involving such individuals can be avoided by use of a little common sense and by:

    • Not carrying excessive amounts of cash
    • Not wearing excessive amounts of expensive or otherwise ‘flashy’ jewellery
    • Walking away from potential offenders

    If you are ‘cornered’ by a dubious looking vendor, a firm ‘no thank you’ or pretending you cannot understand them and walking away are often enough to deter them.

    According to visitors’ opinions, the area is also very well attended by police and the risk of being robbed is actually quite minimal.

    Other Sacre Coeur dangers

    It appears that the risk of slips, trips and falls on the steps leading up to the Sacre Coeur is far greater than that of being robbed or conned.

    In order to prevent injuries by slipping, tripping or falling, it is therefore necessary to take great care while going up and down these steps or avoiding them altogether by taking a
    ride on the funicular.

    The inside of the basilica is apparently also comparatively dark, so again, it is important to mind your step carefully to prevent trip and slip injuries.

    Unfortunate incidents

    If you had a slip, trip or fall at the basilica, or anywhere else in Paris, for that matter, and someone else was responsible for your accident, you could be eligible to claim for personal injury compensation.
