The Basilica of Saint-Denis is a large former medieval abbey church and present cathedral in the commune of Saint-Denis, a northern suburb of Paris. The building is of singular importance historically and architecturally as its choir, completed in 1144, is widely considered the first structure to employ all of the elements of Gothic architecture.

Thirty minutes away from the centre of Paris is Basilique Saint-Denis. This wonderful example of Gothic architecture contains the tombs of past French kings and queens. It also has the big advantage of not being crowded like Notre-Dame... View LARGE On Black
