In the 18th Century, the Place du Tertre became the heart of the Montmartre Commune. Since, the commune was annexed to Paris but nevertheless, the site preserved its village and bohemian appearance and attracted large numbers of artists including Corot, Delacroix, Géricault, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Manet amongst others, who depicted the atmosphere of Montmartre in their work. In our day, the square is still popular with painters, portrait artists and caricaturists, who, with the many cafés, restaurants and cabarets, create that special Montmartre atmosphere : no-one knows Paris if he has not climbed "La Butte".
