The Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (French: Basilica of Notre-Dame-du-Perpétuel-Secours) is a Roman Catholic church located right next to famous Père-Lachaise cemetery in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, France.
Five interesting facts of the church:
- It was built in Neo-Gothic style according to the plans of the Redemptorist brother Gérard between 1895 and 1898.
- In 1966, it was consecrated and elevated to the dignity of a minor basilica by Pope Paul VI (1897–1978).
- It is one of the five minor basilicas in Paris.
- It has a height of 67 m (220 ft).
- There is only one nave but the fourteen side chapels give the impression that there are three.
