Accommodations in Reims near Basilique Saint-Rémi (Reims, France)


Basilique Saint-Rémi (Reims, France)

The abbey church is the burial pace of Saint Rémi who converted and baptised Clovis, king of the Franks, in the 5th century. Having such important relics meant that the foundation became rich, the church was rebuilt and in 1049 the current basilica was consecrated. The style is Romanesque but later additions to accommodate the crowds of pilgrims are gothic. The Romanesque porch was removed and the striking facade added, as well as the choir in which the tomb of the saint is located. It was badly damaged in world war 1 but restored by the 1950s. Pope John Paul II visited in 1996 on the 1500th anniversary of Clovis’s conversion. Together with the cathedral and the Palais Tau, the church is a UNESCO World heritage site. It is open daily from 8am to dusk. There is a music and light display on Saturdays from July to September.
