4 Properties for sale in Seine-St-Denis, Paris - Île-de-France, France
The Seine-St-Denis department lies to the north-east of the Ville de Paris and is a leafy suburb of the city as well as being home to the majestic Stade de France. The Gothic Basilique St-Denis is the burial place of almost all the kings of France and was an extremely revolutionary piece of architecture of its time, while numerous religious monuments and churches cry out for attention such as the Eglise Notre Dame des Vertus with its colourful stained glass and Baroque facade. The department is now particularly culturally diverse, with the highest proportion of immigrant residents in the country, leading to a culture of hip-hop artists and an eclectic feel. World music, jazz and classical music festivals take place throughout the year, and events such as these have lured many young people to the area, especially in areas such as Bobigny. Residents also benefit from the nature parks of Parc de la Courneuve and Parc du Sausset.
