We went on a Wednesday, so what I saw may not be a good representation of other days. The center was filled with artists who sketch people. We were hoping to see paintings (oil, water, or acrylic). As we walked through the center, we were...More

Always an interesting place to visit and watch the artists work. There are a number of restaurants as well with decent prices. One of our favorites in Paris!

Not many people here in early March. Have been here in late may and it's in full "bloom". Square below Sacre Coure filled with artists at "stands" along with wanderers. Paintings for sale, as well as portraits done. Some of the portraitists quite good. It's...More

This square makes a good stop off point either coming from or going to the Sacre-Coeur. A charming place, very touristy but good to sit with a beer & people watch, watching the artists at their work.

Since I can't go back in time, I had to enjoy Place du Tertre as it is now. Even on a Tuesday afternoon in November it was bustling. The square was full of amateur artists hocking their masterpieces. Some were busy creating their new work...More

This is a very touristic place. But it's nice to walk around for a few minutes. The prices in the bars at the square are very expensive, so go somewhere else to have more value for money.

Place du Tertre is in a lovely and historic part of Paris. The area has become very touristy but you can still sense what the area use to be like. Mentally cut through the commercialism of the area and enjoy the views, history and atmosphere.

If you are interested in having your portrait sketched or are interested in buying some cheap trinkets or second rate art, this is the place for you. Otherwise visit Sacre Couer and avoid this poor imitation of what was.

I do not really know. However, can you not email the town hall and ask them for a list of the artists. Best luck. 0 seconds ago

It's a personal choice, of course. But in December the biggest factor will be the weather. Both the Place du Tertre and the basilica steps will be pretty dreary in the rain. The chances of a stunning sunset are not as... More
