This is worth a visit, it's right near the champagne caves, so it's easy to access, it is a bit smaller than Notre Dame but almost as beautiful inside. It is free to enter.

Beautiful church in the center of Reims. The stained glass windows are worth the trip alone. Great acoustics. Wonderful example of extraordinary Gothic architecture. Terrific statuary. It is a must visit location.

It exceeded our expectations. Realistically this is not the highest "must see" in Reims, but it nevertheless is impressive. One has to realize that it is much older than the cathedral. There were very few people in the Basilica which made it easy to take pictures at leisure.

More delicate than the cathedral, the architecture is as impressive overall. The chapels are particularly moving. Well worth the short trip from the very center of town. Quite serene.

A little far south from the center of Reims, very historical and quiet place.

Although this building is not as close to the centre of Reims as the cathedral it is well worth a visit. The architecture and stained glass windows are fantastic and the interior is very interesting. There is a museum next door with a lot of information about St Remi and the history of the Basillica.

I preferred it to the large cathedral but it is also because it was not as crowded and it has more authenticity maybe, it is really well preserved.

If most of the Reims visitors go to the Cathedral, one would be inspired to start with this finest example of the Roman style. The church offers a perfect place to sample a unique atmosphere of grace, peace and hope. Centuries of prayers can be appreciated here , and time seems to stop inviting the visitor to respect such a... More
