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

Fantastic stained-glass work as well as classic gothic construction makes this a must visit while in Reims. It has this undeniable old world charm with some sense of timelessness to it. I would definitely recommend this place to any one who is in Reims.

In contrast to the cathedral, I could have sat there for hours and taken in the atmosphere. You could feel the years of prayer

ALthough the Cathedral at Reims is the place visitors visit the most, I found the Basilica of Saint Remi much nicer; it is in a quiet street, had wonderfully serene interior and beautiful leadlight windows plus an imposing and beautiful exterior.

Located outside the Reims city center, the Basilica of St. Remi is arguably even more impressive than the more famous cathedral. It's also much, much less crowded, making for a more intimate experience. On the day we visited, we had the place to ourselves for over an hour, all the better to appreciate the fineries of its (reconstructed) Gothic architecture.... More
