Beautiful piece of history in the unproper location. Saint Denis, the city, is crazy, the feeling of unsecurity is so strong that it somehow ruins the pleasure of visiting the cathedral. Nevertheless, Saint Denis Basilica is amazing, it surely worth the trouble to go there.

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.

Saint Denis è un anello nella catena della storia. Non ho potuto soffermarmi sui dettagli perché guidavo miei genitori, ma la luce, lo spazio, lo spirito degli antichi reggenti, tutto ti avvolge di fascino. Unica pecca non potere lasciare la valigia in un deposito all'ingresso. Così ho dovuto guidare mia madre e poi mio padre per avere sempre fuori un custode delle valige!
