For the 25th edition of "Monument jeu d'enfant", the Centre des monuments nationaux - basilique cathédrale Saint-Denis invites children and parents to discover the monument in a different way.

This year, we invite you and your family to discover the animal world of the Middle Ages, and the symbolism of animals through the sculptures and stained glass windows of Saint-Denis Cathedral Basilica.


Guided tour of the basilica

Families will discover the tombstones of the kings and queens of France and the animals that inhabit the monument. Learn about the animal world in the Middle Ages and animal symbolism through the basilica's sculptures and stained-glass windows.


Children create and decorate a flying chimera mobile (fake furs, feathers, etc.).
