The famous Place du Tertre is at the centre of the old Montmartre village, over a hill that is the highest in Paris -called 'la Butte Montmartre'- with its 130 meters of height. Moreover, this is one of the most touristic places of the capital. In this picturesque and lively square terraces and restaurants spread along with a permanent exposition of 140 artistic easels (those of painters, portraitists, caricaturists...) exposing the work and giving brush strokes at the same time. Each artist has a prearranged spot of 1 m². Here, a village ambiance unfolds within the big city, with its alleys, its tables covered by gingham napkins and the celebrated 'Café Chez la mère Catherine', a restaurant founded in 1793 that became the first bistro in Paris. In fact, it is told that the world 'bistro' itself was born in this café in 1814, during the Russian occupation, when the cossacks, having no time to wait, ordered a drink while shouting 'Bistro! Bistro!' ('Quick! Quick!' In Russian). The square is near the Sacred Heart basilica of Paris, and its court offers one of the most beautiful panoramic views of Paris, with all its main monuments easily distinguishable in front of you: Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Arc de triomphe... Montmartre has been such a rich place in what it concerns the brewing of pictorial movements : Impressionism, Cubism, Fauvism, Futurism and Surrealism with the likes of Toulouse-Lautrec, Modigliani, Braque, Picasso or Van Gogh.
