A masterpiece of Gothic architecture and the necropolis of the Kings and Queens of France

To the north of Paris, at Saint-Denis, this grandiose basilica cathedral is inextricably bound up with the history of France.

Built on the foundations of a Gallo-Roman cemetery and a 5th-century chapel dedicated to the cult of Saint Denis, first bishop of Paris and martyr, the Basilica of Saint-Denis has continued to expand over the centuries. This jewel of Gothic architecture and royal necropolis houses more than 70 recumbent medieval and Renaissance tombs, constituting the most important ensemble of funerary sculptures from the 13th to the 16th century. There are today 43 kings, 32 queens, 63 princes and princesses and 10 great figures of State buried in the Basilica and its crypt.

The most famous are : Clovis I, Dagobert, Pépin le Bref, François I, Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette. The Basilica invites you to discover the history of France through recumbent statues of the Kings and Queens of France, sublime stained-glass windows and magnificent architecture.

Audio guides are available on-site in 5 languages (extra charge): French, English, German, Spanish and Italian.

Any closures (strikes, public holidays, etc.) and exceptional free admission will not lead to the refund, nor the extension of the duration of tickets.
