“History across from our hotel!”
Review of Porte Mars

Porte Mars
Ranked #37 of 78 things to do in Reims
Attraction details
Reviewed March 7, 2014

This was located right across the street from our hotel. Very interesting to look at. Also it appears to have what I surmise as bullet holes in it. So you have history from Roman times and WWI?

From a distance it doesn't look like much but there still remains some very good detail if studied closely. It must have been a really impressive gateway.

The place just draws you in, it's only a few arches but seeing the bullet holes just makes you think of the sacrifice of the soldiers

Part of a Roman Wall built in the 3rd century the gate stands oddly in a park without much immediately around it. To see it at it's best stop by and have a look at dusk just as the lights are coming on around it. Then go and hit the many nearby restaurants

Located in the cross roads leading into the centre of town the only way you would miss this is if you had your eyes closed! No pomp here, just a gate surrounded by a glorious park. There is very little information about it at it's locale, read up on it via internet or information provided by the tourist office. Great photo op!
