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.
