Travel Tips for Saint-Denis

Royal Pantheon (2)

by spanishguy

Napoleon reopened the church in 1806, but the royal remains were left in their mass-graves. Following Napoleon's first exile to Elba, the Bourbons returned to power. They ordered a search for the corpses of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, the few remains, were found on 1815, brought to Saint Denis and buried in the crypt. In 1817 the mass-graves containing all the other remains were opened but it was impossible to distinguish any one from the collection of bones. The remains were therefore placed in an ossuary in St. Denis' crypt, behind two marble plates with the names of the hundreds of members of the succeeding French Dynasties that were interred in the church duly recorded.

Napoleón reabrió la iglesia en 1806, pero los restos reales continuaron en las fosas comunes. tras el exilio de Napoleón, los Borbones regresaron al poder y ordenaron buscar los cuerpos de Luis XVI y María Antonieta, los cuales fueron encontrados en 1815, traídos a San Denís y enterrados en la cripta. En 1817 las fosas comunes se abrieron para recuperar los cuerpos de los demás Reyes, pero fue imposible distinguirlos entre todos los huesos. Todos los restos se depositaron en un osario en la cripta de San Denís tras dos placas de marmol con los nombres de los cientos de miembros de la Dinastía francesa, para así, quedar en el recuerdo.

The apse - El ábside

by spanishguy

The Basilica's apse is completly ornated with colourful stained glass windows. There are different chapels in this part. The main one is devoted to the Virgin but there are another very interesting, as the one which keeps an original medieval King banner.

El ábside de la Basílica está ornamentado completamente con coloridas vidriedas. Hay varias capillas en esta sección. La principal está dedicada a la Virgen, pero hay otras más muy interesantes, como una que tiene un pendón del Rey original de la Edad Media.

Locate the Fine Ancient Madonna and Child

by hquittner

At the entrance to the chancel on the right is a 12C polychromed seated wood statue of the Madonna and Child. It is an excellent example of the technical level of artistry that had been reached by that time. It was brought here from the church of St.-Martin in the Fields (in the Temple Quarter) which had been converted to other functions after the Revolution.

Ducs d'Orleans

by Diana75

Another beautiful tomb is the one of Ducs d'Orleans.

Charles, duc d'Orleans, father of Louis XII, Louis, duc d"Orleans, son of Charles V and Jeanne de Bourbon and father of Charles d'Orleans, Valentine Visconti, duchesse d'Orleans, spouse of Louis d'Orleans and Philippe, count de Vertus rest all here.
