Not to be missed

3 sites on the Unesco World Heritage list :

  • Notre-Dame Cathedral :
    Notre-Dame de Reims is one of Europe's most important Gothic structures. The 13th century cathedral has characteristics all its own, in particular its lighting, statuary and unity of style
  • Palais du Tau :
    Adjoining Notre-Dame cathedral, the Palace-Museum of Tau houses a fabulous treasuretrove, which includes Charlemagne's talisman. Nowhere else than here, the former residence of the archbishops of Reims, is the historic coexistence between the Church and the monarchy so intense.
  • Saint-Remi Basilica and Abbey-Museum :
    While Notre-Dame is impressive because of its soaring structure and luminosity, visitors are entranced by Saint-Remi's profundity and the feeling of intimacy that it arouses. In fact, this Romanesque-Gothic abbey church is characterized by its sober majesty.
