Wonderful to visit this vast abbey church which is so revered by the people of Reims. This is where the bishop Remi (who lived to the age of 96!) baptised Clovis, founder of Catholocism, in 496. It was shocking to see the damage to the nave and chancel roof during the second World War, but wonderful to see the restorations.... More

This is not too far from the Reims cathedral. It's a lot less busy then the cathedral, even on a Sunday, I had the building pretty much to myself. The architecture and history is stunning, it's well worth the short walk if you've come to see Reims cathedral.

Well worth a visit and very impressive. Pick a sunny day if possible so you can appreciate more the stain glass windows.

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.
