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 its 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.
