Memories DMC France Private tour of the Necropolis of the Kings and Queens: the Basilica of Saint Denis

Private tour of the Necropolis of the Kings and Queens: the Basilica of Saint Denis

The Basilica of St Denis is the final resting place of the kings and queens of France and the first Gothic church in the world. Its prestige dates from the Middle Ages, when the gothic style of architecture spread throughout northern Europe and the King Saint Louis decided to turn the Basilica into the official Royal necropolis. The Cathedral’s architecture is breathtaking, and the magnificent recumbents and mausoleums within it illustrate the evolution of funerary art. Our professional tour guide will recount the stories of the Kings and Queens who lie there, from Dagobert in the VIth century to Louis XVIII in the XIXth century, including the tombs of King Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette. After this tour, you will be able to understand France more deeply and from another perspective.
