What people are saying:

An easy metro ride from the heart of Paris, Basilique Saint-Denis is one of the most important churches in and around the city. For anyone who likes history or has an appreciation for French royalty, this is your place. Its crypt houses some infamous French nobility. But be warned, this is not an area where you should linger at night.
