Le Montmartrain - Sacré Coeur, Paris


Amidst the hustle and bustle of modern life and the traffic of a metropolis, the Montmartrain meanders and its way along paths familiar only to those in the know. It has chosen to share the secrets and mysteries of Montmartre with visitors ready to discover a hidden village in the big city.

At least a thousand years of history awaits every curious visitor. Will they accept to move between history and myth? Will they wander between the proven and fantasized presence of the Romans on the Butte Montmartre and the hectic activity of the artists on the Place du Tertre? Will they picture the generations of artists who have lived, loved, and worked creatively along the way? Will they love the Cités des fusains, dream as they pass in front of the Bateau-Lavoir? Will they be part of the farandole that joins the hands of Jean Arp, André Derain, Auguste Renoir, Sophie Taeuber; Maurice Utrillo was not able to come but his mum Suzanne Valadon wrote him a note of apology!

The Montmartrain is accompanied along its route by singers and musicians; Montmartre was able to offer shelter to Erik Satie, Aristide Bruant, Yvette Guilbert…., they were followed by Mac Orlan, Carco, Paul Yaki. When jazz came to France, it made a long and often repeated stopover at Montmartre and the visitor enjoys the notes that escape from the "Lapin Agile/ à Gill", the Arènes de Montmartre, Blue Note or Portobello.

The little train stops. What, is it already over? Why are we back in the world of everyday life?
