A plunge into the destiny of the Queens of France

I propose a trip in the time and history of France in the company (among others) Anne de Bretagne, Catherine de Medici and Marie Antoinette with the discovery of the basilica-cathedral of St Denis.

Visiting this building at once political, architectural and religious, we go back centuries with the discovery of the tombs of the largest queens. Visiting the royal necropolis is indeed a great opportunity to return to the role of these women, often forgotten or belittled, who have contributed greatly to the history of the kingdom. We will also discuss the history of this masterpiece of Gothic art from St Denis (first bishop of Paris) in the third century until after the French Revolution.

So, ready to follow the (last) steps of Isabelle d'Aragon or Jeanne de Bourbon? I'm waiting for you to discover this unmissable monument in the history of France.
