The place is an small construction near to Boulingrin Market and Museum of Rendition. It is interesting because of its age: the gate was one of the four entrance gates to Reims in the old ages. Visitors can have some information by reading an information board just next to the gate (in French and English). Unfortunately, it is possible to... More

It was great to see that this ancient city gate is still standing. Look up as you walk through to see detailed carvings.

This widest remaining Roman Arch in the world, from 3 AD, is well worth the short visit needed to come and gaze at this historic monument. Beautiful.

This arch is truly amazing by the mere fact that it still exists from Roman days. It is very worn in many areas, but details in the arches are still visible.

One of the sightseeing points in the Reims walking trail are the roman ruins known as Mars Gate. It is a substantial piece of roman architecture and is remarkably well preserved. You can't fail to find the Mars Gate if you have been to the large covered market as the Gate is behind the market and close to the tram... More

Really interesting spot. Reims was heavily bombed in the war and the memorial nearby is quite a spot. The gate you can see the damage.

The english plaque lacked detail but the french info was very interesting - the structure itself is immense and any history enthusiast should like it!

Very little of Rome is left in Reims and this is the biggest piece. It is interesting and if you spend the time to squint closely at it you can make out some of the decorations.

It's hard to imagine seeing and touching something that was built by the Romans, but it's possible in Reims. To see it takes very little time, it's within walking distance (5-7 blocks) of some hotels and the retail/dining area, and it's free.

The Porte is easily taken for granted by many visitors and residents of Reims, but it is a unique structure that provides a glimpse into history and the origins of civilization. The design embellishments are fascinating as is the construction.
