Saint Denis Cathedral

save place
Paris church bells chime
Notre Dame Cathedral, with her flying buttresses and vaulted ceilings is the finest example of Gothic architecture, which was first known as “French work.” A gargoyles’ eye view of Paris awaits those brave enough to climb her towers. Another gothic highlight, La Sainte Chapelle has awe-inspiringly beautiful stained glass windows and is a fitting venue for the concerts that are held regularly. For a different style, St Eustache church boasts modern art including a triptych by Keith Herring. Built of white stones that self-clean with every rain, Sacre Coeur, crowns the city, a constant reminder of France’s glory. St Denis Basilica is worth a visit for the hauntingly peaceful sculptures that mark the burial sites of the Kings of France.
