Square Louise Michel

Local name: Square Louise Michel

Place Louise Michel is located on the Montmartre hill, at the foot of the Sacre Coeur Basilica. It is known primarily from the monumental stairs leading to the temple and the magnificent view of Paris.

The character Louise Michel is one of the French symbols of the struggle for social equality. She was a writer, anarchist, fighter of the Paris commune and publicist. Called the Red Virgin of Montmartre or Good Louise, she fought to improve the fate of the poorest inhabitants of Paris. The square in the middle of the district was named after her, with which she connected her life to a large extent.

The domes of the Sacre Coeur Basilica dominate over Place Louise Michel. It is a place chosen by photographers who want to embrace the entire church on the one hand, and photograph the panorama of Paris on the other. This place gathers crowds of tourists at any time of the year.
