The last home of the kings and queens of France.

The first masterpiece of Gothic art, the church of a powerful abbey and a very important place of pilgrimage in the Middle Ages, the cathedral basilica of Saint-Denis linked its destiny to that of royalty by becoming the burial place of the kings and queens of France. Today it houses more than seventy sculpted funerary tombs, including those of Dagobert, François I, Catherine de Médicis and Louis XVI.
