At the square Suzanne Buisson, between rue Simon Dereure and Av. Junot astatue is located of St. Denis holding his chopped off head.

St. Denis, who lived in the 3rd century, caused a stir among pagan priests because of the number of people he converted to Christianity. He was executed in 272. After he was beheaded, St. Denis is said to have picked up his head and walked ten kilometres (six miles), up the "Mount of Mars" hill (now Montmarte) preaching a sermon the entire way.
