A masterpiece of Gothic art and the final resting place for a great many Kings of France, the former abbey of Saint-Denis has stood through centuries of spiritual, political and artistic history.
The basilica is the earliest masterpiece of French Gothic architecture. A royal abbey and major pilgrimage site in the Middle Ages, it assumed its principal role as the burial site for the Kings of France as early as the 6th century. Despite being ransacked during the Revolution, the basilica houses over seventy royal tombs, including those of Dagobert, François I, Catherine de’ Medici and Louis XVI.
