Map of Sacré-Cœur and the Butte Montmartre.
The Sacré-Cœur is a large basilica that stands atop the hill of Montmartre (French: Butte Montmarte) in the north of Paris. With its commanding position, the church can be seen across the city and even from areas as far away as Le Havre and Saarbrücken. It also serves as Father Denis' base of operations, where he provides missions from a back office inside.
The basilica is one of the closest landmarks near La Belle du Nuit, located atop the nearby hill of Montmartre. Directly across the road from the church are large flights of steps cutting through greenery, leading down to a small plaza at the bottom of the hill.
Surrounding the Sacré-Cœur are numerous freeplay targets such as searchlights, guard towers, and stunt jumps leading down the hill. The church interior can be entered through an open doorway at the base of the main facade, with Father Denis' office being located behind the transept.
A scenic viewpoint is present on the main dome of the building. To access it, Sean must climb up scaffolding located towards the back of the Sacré-Cœur, before ascending its campanile. From the belfry, a cable reaching out towards the back of the main dome can be used to zip line across, after which the viewpoint can be accessed by navigating around the base of the dome.
- With its large size and prominent position, the church can be used to help navigate back towards Paris from the countryside, particularly towards the northern edge of the map.
