Montmartre is a hill (the butte Montmartre) which is 130 metres high, giving its name to the surrounding district, in the north of Paris in the 18th arrondissement, a part of theRight Bank.

Montmartre is primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Cœur on its summit and as a nightclub district. 

The other, older, church on the hill is Saint Pierre de Montmartre, which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded. Many artists had studios or worked around the community of Montmartre such as Salvador DalíAmedeo ModiglianiClaude MonetPablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh. Montmartre is also the setting for several hit films.
