Travel Tips for Saint-Denis

Saint Denis martyrdom -Martirio San Dionisio

by spanishguy

The city is called Saint Denis because of the Christian martyr and Saint who is buried here. He was martyred in 272, and he is venerated as patron of Paris. Denis was the first bishop of Paris when he was sent from Italy by the Pope Fabian to convert Gaul in the third century. This was after the persecutions under Emperor Decius had all but dissolved the small Christian community at Lutetia (the roman name of Paris). In addition, Denis, irritated the Romans for his many conversions. Finally he, with his inseparable companions Rusticus and Eleutherius, was executed on the highest hill near Paris (Montmartre) by being beheaded by a sword. It's said that after his head was chopped off, Denis picked it up and walked six kilometres preaching a sermon the entire way. The site where he stopped preaching and actually died was made into a small shrine that developed into the current Saint Denis Basilica, which became the burial place for the kings of France. Another version says that his body was thrown in the Seine, but recovered and buried later that night by his converts in the current ground of Saint Denis Basilica. La ciudad se llama Saint Denis (San Dionisio) por el martir y santo cristiano que está enterrado aquí. Fue el primer obispo de París en el siglo III cuando fue enviado desde Italia por el Papa Fabián para convertir la Galia. Esto fue en tiempos de las persecuciones del Emperador Decio que consiguió varias cosas, pero no disolver la comunidad cristiana de Lutecia (el nombre romano de París). Además Dionisio irritó a los romanos por la gran cantidad de conversiones que consiguió. Finalmente él, junto a sus inseparables compañeros Rústico y Eleuterio, fue ejecutado en la colina más alta cercana a París (Montmartre), siendo decapitado por una espada. Se dice que una vez se cayó su cabeza, Dionisio la cogió y anduvo seis kilómetros predicando todo el camino. En el lugar donde dejó de predicar y realmente murió se levantó una pequeña capilla, que fue desarrollándose hasta la actual Basílica de Saint Denis, que pasó a ser pronto el lugar de entierro de los reyes de Francia. Otra versión dice que su cuerpo fue arrojado al Sena, pero recuperado por los convertidos más tarde y enterrado en los atuales terrenos de la Basílica de Saint Denis.

Musée d'Art et d'Histoire

by MM212

Housed in a 17th century Carmelite convent since 1981, the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire exhibits the history of Saint Denis through art and archaeological objects that date back to the Roman era and before. The convent itself was commissioned by Marie de Médecis in 1628, but it was closed down after the French Revolution. It was later used as a barracks. If visiting Saint Denis on a weekend, note that the museum is only open in the afternoon.

Eglise Saint-Denis de l'Estrée

by MM212

Completed in 1867, Eglise Saint-Denis de l'Estrée replaced an ancient church of the same name, and was thus also referred to as l'Eglise Neuve ("New Church"). The original church was located along the Roman road, Via Strata, which was corrupted over time to "Estrée", hence the name. The new simple Gothic church was designed by Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc, an architect who had also worked on the restoration of la Basilique Cathédrale de Saint-Denis and la Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris. Both la Basilique Saint-Denis and l'Eglise Neuve are dedicated to the same saint and face each other at the two ends of the thoroughfare, rue de la République.

Last Bourbon Kings tombs

by Diana75

Located in the crypt, the tombs of the last Bourbon kings are more modern and somber.

Louis XVI, beheaded in 1792, is burried under the center stone on the right.

His wife, Marie-Antoinette, who died the following year, is buried center left.

Forward right is the tomb of Louis XVIII, who reclaimed the throne after the Revolution and the defeat to the Emperor Napoleon I.

Royal Saint Denis

by spanishguy

" Real Saint Denis"

Saint Denis is a small city next to Paris. The first reason to come to this suburb is to visit the Basilica, where the French kings are buried. During its history, Saint-Denis has been closely associated with the French royal house; starting from Dagobert I, almost every French king is buried in the Basilica. Appart from this historical fact, the Basilica is incredible beautiful itself, being the first Gothic Cathedral. Its stained glass windows are definitely remarkable.

Saint Denis es una pequeña ciudad pegada a París. La primera razón para venir a este suburbio de la ciudad es visitar su Basílica, donde están enterrados los Reyes de Francia. Durante su historia, Saint Denis ha sido asociada ala casa real francesa; comenzando por Dagoberto I, practicamente todos los reyes franceses están enterrados aquí. Además de este dato histórico la Basílica es increíblemente bella, siendo la primera Catedral gótica. Sus vidrieras son definitivamente destacables.

It's easy to guess the Monarchical heritage of the city looking at its coats-of-arms. It's all decorated with fleur-de-lis, the Bourbon family symbol, and the bleu royal colour as background.

Es facil adivinar la herencia monárquica de la ciudad viendo el escudo. Está decorado todo él con flores de lis, el símbolo de la familia de Borbón, y con el color azul como fondo.

Saint Denis is a small city in the outskirts of Paris, very easy to arrive in from the capital city centre by the Metro system. It's seems as if you don't leave Paris because, in fact, there are no empty spaces between the capital and Saint Denis, as its happens with all its suburbs.

Saint Denss es una pequeña ciudad en las afueras de París, muy facil de llegar desde la capital con el Metro. Parece como si no dejaras París porque, de hecho, no hay espacio libre entre la capital y Saint Denis, como pasa con todos los suburbios de la ciudad.
