Saint-Denis, France

Saint-Denis is a suburb (banlieue) just north of Paris.

The martyred saint was said to have been beheaded in Paris, yet miraculously picked up his own head, washed it and walked nearly 10 km north to his future namesake village. In Paris, you can see his headless statue by the main door of Notre Dame and his headless portrait in the mosaic of Sacre Coeur.
