Abbot Suger, a masterful patron was driven by one burning ambition - to rebuild Saint-Denis, the Royal Abbey where influential Kings and Queens of France were buried. Nowhere else is the potency of divine energy more evident than in the Basilica of Saint-Denis, which radiates an aura of stateliness. Featuring structural and stylistic techniques, and the monumental tombs of 43 French kings, 32 French queens, and 10 royal servants, the Basilica is a major and founding work of Gothic architecture. In fact, it was the first religious structure to place importance on light, setting medieval architecture on a new course that would go on to define Europe in the later Middle Ages.
The Basilica of Saint-Denis offers a treat to anyone who wishes to immerse themselves in architecture and history. With skip the line entry, you can spend quality time exploring the royal necropolis of Saint-Denis. Pick up on the history of the place through the leaflets provided to you on entry. Walk among the remains of early French royals, see over 70 statues and monumental tombs from the Renaissance period, observe the careful and brilliant transition from late Romanesque to Gothic style, and marvel at the biggest collection of funerary sculpture from the 12th to the 16th centuries.
