Worth seeking out

This large beautiful church is a bit further out of the centre but worth it if you like gothic architecture.

An interesting building but very dark inside. We only went their because of the name and the large complex attached to it. To be frank there are better things to see.

This is an amazing basilica with so much history. Suggest you read up on it as there was no one there when we went. St. Remi, patron saint of Reims, is buried there. He lived to be 96 and there is a crown of 96 candles ( a light fixture) in the main church area.

The church is entered from the side door. It is open even when the museum is not. It has a good display of historical features as you enter and you can contextualise what you see. There is a lovely calm atmosphere.

How stunning, beautiful and ancient. Oh the history in that building, not to mention the beauty. Just looking at the intricacy of the ceiling blew my mind, and to think it was built so long ago. Wonderful example of the ability of human kind.

We thought we me pop into the Basilique on our way across town to visit some of the champagne houses. We're so glad we did! It was stunning inside. A huge floor plan and so so so well kept, beautifully clean in all corners. The ceilings are so high up and the corridors so long they are enchanting and mesmerising... More

It is indeed the history of the basilica that drew us to visit. As always, spending time in such an old and beautiful building is a special experience. We stayed in the center of Reims and it was a long walk for us to reach the basilica (this would not have been an issue when we were younger). However, the... More

Actually found the basilica more interesting than the cathedral. Though not really central in Reims, one should definitely make the "detour"

My wife and I stumbled upon this UNESCO site while driving through the champagne region and when we visited this basilica, there was an opera group practicing for a show they had that night and let me tell you it added such a beautifully haunting edge to our visit. The beautiful music coupled with the arches and the really old... More

If you like or are interested in the Middle Age, go to this Basilique, it seems you travel to the past. It made me imagine how people in the past used to live and how they worshiped.
