The 4 storey Gothic chancel is lit by 12C stained glass. Bring binoculars to study these. They so deserve this. This is an unusually long and narrow church with its proportions making it appear even more lofty than it is.

I was doing my home-work on Reims Cathedral prior to my visit and I came across Saint Remi's statues of the Bishops and Kings, etc. - and I thought, 'This I have to see.' At Reims Cathedral I certainly could 'feel' the history in the air, but here at Rimi's, even more so. Bishop Rimi baptised France's first king -... More

A miraculous space. An old Romanesque cathedral that was dramatically expanded over the centuries into full gothic glory. Peaceful and calm and without the crowds at Notre Dame du Reims. Go there!

When you first arrive at the basilica you don't appreciate the size. You turn the corner and there is more and walk past and there is even more it just seems to go on and on. The stonework is very impressive and grand. We passed this on the way to Taittingers so didn't have the opportunity to go in but... More

This visit won't take long, but worth it indeed to appreciate the history and the level of detail that went into constructing this beautiful cathedral.

This basilica is impressive in terms of its history and its architecture. It's also a cool place to escape from the summer sun. Gorgeous stained glass windows of various styles date back to the 12th century. We had the opportunity to see the Orchestre National de Lorraine perform here as well. Wonderful acoustics for performances.

We visited the Basilique on a weekday afternoon in mid-June, 2015. Perhaps there were four or five others inside when we were there. This is an absolutely beautiful church that evoked a feeling of peace and serenity. The Cathedrale Notre-Dame is much better known, but I felt almost other-worldly inside the Basilique.

The Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Reims gets a great deal of attention in Reims... but, it would be a mistake to skip the Basilica which has an enchanting interior that is well worth a visit.

We actually liked this one better than the Reims Cathedral. Gorgeous stained glass windows. You get off at the St Timothy bus stop (also where you get off for the Taittinger champagne house)

A beautiful place to visit. Not as busy as the Catheral so not as noisy. On a good day, with the lights coming in through the windows, the place looks stunning.
