Europe's Most-Visited Tourist Attractions

No. 3 (tie) Sacré Coeur Basilica, Paris

Annual Visitors: 10,500,000

Sacré Coeur lures visitors to the summit of Montmartre for a litany of reasons—while some come to pray and meditate, most come for the remarkable 360-degree views of the City of Light from its highest vantage point. The construction of the Basilica, which started in 1871, was intended to restore peace to a site stained by violence during the Revolution and Paris Commune. sacre-coeur-montmartre.com —Ann Shields
