The main façade and domes of Sacré-Cœur Basilica.

The main façade and central and western domes of basilique Sacré-Cœur. Although the building project started in 1875, construction of edifice itself began only in 1881 as it was necessary to build pillars 110 feet deep through the underlying quarries to support the church.
