Saint Denis is a link in the chain of history. I could not dwell on the details because I was guiding my parents, but the light, the space, the spirit of the ancient rulers, everything envelops you in charm. The only flaw is not being able to leave the suitcase in a deposit at the entrance. So I had to drive my mother and then my father to always have a luggage keeper out!

This cathedral was gorgeous and the burial sculptures of France’s kings, queens and other royalty were beautiful. What should be mentioned though is how sketchy this neighborhood is. It really was the worst neighborhood I’ve been in throughout all of Paris. Thankfully the cathedral is only a few minutes from the metro exit.

You have to know that the entrance to the cathedral is actually free. Admission is valid for the crypt with the tombs of the French kings and for the part near the choir with the rose windows. The choir itself is currently being restored. However, there are charts with the history of the cathedral on the spot. I found it negative that my QR code could not be read by getyourguide at the checkout. The app only showed the German text. The clerk at the counter still let me through after a while.
