The coronation ceremonies of most of all French kings were held in this cathedral.

On the north facade try to find the Smiling Angel. It's a 13th century sculpture with its own story to tell, as it was beheaded during the German bombing in 1914 and the fragments became a famous piece of anti-German propaganda within France.

 

 

 

Incredibly beautiful architectural monument is the Basilica of St. Remigius, the very first church in its place was built in the 10th century. Today you can see a magnificent building with columns and arches, which was built in the 19th century, the basilica was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Now the abbey has opened the Saint-Rémy Museum, where you can see the archaeological finds of primitive times and the ancient era, as well as a collection of items related to military affairs: weapons, combat vehicles, armor from the 16th century.

 



Another historical monument, which is under the protection of UNESCO, is the Palace of Tau. the construction of which took place in the 15th and 16th centuries.  Built on the site of an ancient Gallo-Roman villa, the palace n its current form around the end of the 17th century. The palace houses a museum.

 






Fans of painting should definitely visit the Reims Museum of Fine Arts, which was founded in 1794 and was originally housed in the town hall. Over the years, the collection of the museum has increased hundreds of times, so in 1913 it was transferred to the building of the old monastery, which is now located. The museum's exposition is based on the collection of paintings of the Renaissance, and the entire first floor of the museum is dedicated to the art of the 20th century.
