Vice and revolution: Montmartre's scandalous history
Issued on: Modified:
This week, FRANCE 24 delves into the extraordinary history of the stunning Montmartre neighbourhood in Paris. Located in the north of the French capital, it only became part of the city in the 1860s. Before then, it was covered in fields and some 30 windmills. Today, tourists flock to the iconic church that sits at its summit, the Sacred Heart Basilica. But behind the tourist trail lies a story of violence, vice and revolution.
