Such an amazing building. I often wonder how these things got made without the aid of modern machinery. Arches, stained glass, stonework. #beautiful

One of two giant churches in the town of Reims that are UNESCO World Heritage sites, I was in some ways more impressed by the Basilica than the Cathedral, particularly in terms of the interior. A vast space with some great stained glass and interesting altars, we were exploring while a wedding was being held, but never felt like we... More

Our visit was made special by the wedding service in progress during the time we were there. This is a fabulous building with so many layers and arches inside that it reminded us of an Escher picture. It is a lovely place with a lovely feel to it

just saw the end of a baptism when visiting. Had trouble finding this church as it is off the centre. Bit of a walk but worth it when inside.

This is out of the main tourist areas. There are lovely grounds to walk around. Don't go into this area if you are planning to eat as there is very little around here. The building is lovely though and it is the area that inspired The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Worth seeking out - the basilica is stunning - particularly inside. The light filtering through the windows is amazing! The history is also fascinating - consecrated in 1049, it was built to honor Saint Remi who converted Clovis, the King of the Franks, to Christianity in the 496AD.

I preferred this wonderful basilica to the main cathedral, partly because there were hardly any people there, and the people who were there respected its historical and religious significance. The stained glass windows are spectacular, and the lighting is sensational.

This beautiful basilica in the eastern end of town is almost as impressive as the main Cathedral. It is easily reached via bus #4. The story behind the Cathedral where St. Remi converts the pagan Clovis is very interesting, and is an extremely important historical fact as it introduced Christianity to France in about the fourth century.

To really appreciate, you need to take the tour on top of the cathedral where a guide will give you a lot of details of not only the crowning of French Kings but the architectural structures, the devastation of WW1 and the incredible generosity of the Rockefeller family
