Notre Dame Cathedral

A masterpiece of Gothic art, the impressive Notre Dame is one of France’s greatest cathedrals. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has seen 32 French kings crowned under its soaring ceiling, throughout the course of it’s history. Construction on the cathedral began in 1211, on the site of a church that had burnt down, and was finally complete 300 years later. The cathedral has some amazing stained glass windows and a wonderful feeling of historical grandeur. It has stood the test of time, surviving as Reims was laid flat by bombing during the First World War. The cathedral is the heart of the city, on the Place du Cardinal-Lucon, opposite the tourist office. In July and August daily guided tours are available. Open daily. Free entrance.

Palais du Tau (Tau Palace)

Next to the cathedral is the Palais du Tau, the former archbishop's palace, which houses treasure from the cathedral including tapestries, sculptures and artefacts from the kings’ coronations including Charlemagne's 9th century talisman. The "Salle du Tau", once used as a banqueting hall after coronations, is particularly noteworthy.
