Create an itinerary including Basilique Saint-Remi
Founded in the sixth century, Basilique Saint-Remi has conserved the relics of Saint Remi (died 553), the Bishop of Reims since 1099, after whom Reims was named after. The 12th-century stained glass remains intact in the four-story Gothic choir, but many valuable objects were looted during the French Revolution, and the Holy Ampulla of the coronation of the kings of France, located in the abbey, was destroyed in 1793.

In honor of its 800th birthday, recent restorations have improved the basilica. An on-site museum in the Abbey Royale highlights the history of the abbey, local archaelogical relics, regional military history, and the town's Gallo-Roman history.

  • All these magnificent churches are going to take your breath away This might be the smaller church but still it is meticulous and gorgeous. Take a stroll inside. You will soon wonder How did the people build these ultra high ceiling structures that many years ago? Happy travels
  • One of the most impressive cathedrals in Europe. It is free and definitely worth a visit. If you scan the qr codes you will get detailed info about the history of the place. Spare some time to visit the cathedral.
