The Rue Foyatier is a street on the Montmartre butte ("outlier"), in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. Opened in 1867, it was given its current name in 1875, after the sculptor Denis Foyatier (1793–1863). It is one of the most famous streets in Paris, because it consists essentially of flights of stairs giving access to the Sacré-Cœur Basilica. The Montmartre funicular runs alongside it.
