    Montmartre, Paris, France
    Named "Mount of the Martyrs" for its role as the setting of the bloody deaths of a number of religious figures. Today it is a preserved historical site and a popular tourist attraction. It became renowned as a center of arts and culture in the late 1800s.

    Numerous famous painters, including Van Gogh, Matisse, Monet, Picasso, Renoir, Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec, gathered and passed through here, and more often than not were moved to render its scenery on canvas. A number of these artists also appeared as background NPCs.

    Moulin Rouge
    "My dream is to one day stand on the stage of the Moulin Rouge!"

    Circa 1889 by Joseph Oller, it is a cabaret located near Montmartre in Paris. Apart from the performances it provided, its signature image is the false red windmill on top of the building. It has been immortalized in songs, film and art, and is perhaps most well-known today from the bohemian movie-musical Moulin Rouge! (2001).
