Discovery of the Porte de Mars in Reims

Walk in the footsteps of your ancestors during your stay in Reims


Roman heritage in the north of France


If we go back in time, the city of Reims belonged to the Rèmes. During his conquest of Gaul, Julius Caesar decided to pay tribute to this Gallic people who were one of the only ones not to oppose the Emperor.

He chose to make Durocortorum (Roman name) the capital of Belgian Gaul. To do this, he transformed the city into the largest in Roman Gaul.

He erected the Mars Gate and three other monumental arches to show his power to the world. Only the first one withstood the test of time.


The Mars Gate in plain sight


Today, all travellers passing through Reims can admire this period building. At 12 metres high and almost 32 metres long, it is impossible to walk by without seeing it!

The Porte de Mars has 3 arches. The two side arches allowed pedestrians to enter the city. The central arch was reserved for the passage of carts.

Take a closer look at this last mentioned arch. You will notice sculptures that show a calendar of agricultural activities of the time, such as the harvest. A she-wolf is also hidden under this central archway.

Romulus and Remus, the legendary founder of Reims, can also be recognised.


Sleeping in Reims


Put your luggage down at the 3* Hotel au Tambour during your trip to the Champagne-Ardenne region. This family-run hotel is the ideal base near the train station and the city centre of Reims.

Take the opportunity to discover the pearls of the region such as the most beautiful champagne cellars in the area or the museums that tell the story of the town's past better than anyone else.
