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

We popped in here as we had an hour before our Taittinger tour. So glad we did. Cool and quite but awesome inside. I liked the pictures showing the devistation afflicted on the building from WW1 and the work they have done to bring it back to the building it is now. You would never know it had been repaired,...

We had parked in a side street in Reims looking for a cafe for lunch and wandered over to an enormous church and found that it was a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inside, the basilica had fine stained glass windows, including a magnificent rosace as well as the tomb of St Remi who baptised Clovis, the first King of the... More

Less crowded that the Notre Dame, located in the area of most of champagne cellars, 1.5 km south from the city centre. Pay 2 Eur to illuminate the church for 10 min. to take some photos (a machine is on the left in the transept), then sit and meditate in a cool and peaceful half-darkness.
