What to expect

The basilica of Saint-Denis is a unique site that allows you to embrace centuries of French monarchy history in a single glance. Located at the gates of Paris, this magnificent Gothic edifice - the first of its kind - houses the tombs of a significant number of French monarchs: 43 kings and 32 queens rest in its crypt for eternity, from the well-known King Dagobert to Louis-Philippe, the last king of the French, beneath intricately sculpted effigies with touching care. Within the church, the serene ambiance, far from the bustle of Parisian monuments, offers a genuine moment of spirituality.

Monsieur M.
Impeccable mais parfois non nécessaire.
Published over a year ago

seule l'incitation aux visiteurs d'acheter rapidement les entrées en évoquant le temps d'attente s'avère mensongère et c'est fort dommage. Je me retrouve quelques fois le bureau de vente désert et l'employé m'a certifié qu'il n'est pas souvent nécessaire d'en acheter en avance. Soit il faut réactualiser assez souvent pour ne pas décevoir par vos conseils les futurs visiteurs, merci.
