As quoted in the movie Moulin Rouge, "A village of sin" located in "the center of the Bohemian world", a.k.a. Paris, France. A quaint area of Paris on top of a hill which includes many sites, such as the famous white basilica, the Sacre-Coeur, and the absinthe-induced nightclub, the Moulin Rouge. The village is home to many French artists who sell their artwork fresh from the easel on the small avenues. Home to the great restaurant, Catherine's (English translation), in which the traditional red and white checked tablecloths are displayed right up next to French painters.
Montmartre is my favorite place in all the world. Not to mention the red windmill which inspired my favorite movie of all time.
