A Dauphin’s Heart & French Royal Remains at the Basilica of St Denis Notes from the Field (Atlas Obscura)

Our one visit to Saint-Denis took us on a long Metro ride, to the end of the line. Saint Denis is not a prosperous town and we could not find our way. There was a seedy Flea Market, and we eventually found the Basillica St. Denis. At first it appeared decrepit and in disrepair. Everything has a patina. There were no lines of tourists, only a beggar or two.

We finally found the entrance, where they accepted my Museum Pass. There is too much history to absorb. Even the gift shop seemed decrepit, it was a depressing afternoon.

On the positive side. We stopped at a sandwich shop, outside the Basilica, across from the Flea Market. They served us the best ham and cheese baguette, with lots of french mustard.

So much to see in St. Denis
Worth a return visit
