French: Cathédrale Notre-Dame, ancienne abbaye Saint-Rémi et palais de Tau, Reims
The Cathedral of Notre-Dame, Former Abbey of Saint-Rémi and Palace of Tau, Reims is a World Heritage Site in France defined by the UNESCO in 1991 and definitely a recommended cultural sightseeing location.
It is on position 175 () in our monthly survey.

 

"The outstanding handling of new architectural techniques in the 13th century, and the harmonious marriage of sculptural decoration with architecture, has made Notre-Dame in Reims one of the masterpieces of Gothic art. The former abbey still has its beautiful 9th-century nave, in which lie the remains of Archbishop St Rémi (440–533), who instituted the Holy Anointing of the kings of France. The former archiepiscopal palace known as the Tau Palace, which played an important role in religious ceremonies, was almost entirely rebuilt in the 17th century."
