Tombs of French Kings

The Cathédral de Saint-Denis has been the resting place of French nobility and royalty since the 5th century. Designed in 1135 and built upon a church from 475, the cathedral represents the climax of Gothic architecture. The cathedral has the tombs of nearly every French king from Clovis I to Louis XVIII including: Charles Martel, Louis XVI, and Marie Antoinette. The tombs range from two stories high to being an unmarked grave, and many of the monuments and sculptures were smashed or destroyed during the French Revolution. The cathedral has a free organ concert every Sunday at 11:15am.
