Visit the Basilica of Saint-Rémi in Reims

Discover one of the most famous historical monuments in Reims


The Saint-Rémi Basilica is a must-see for history, architecture and culture lovers.


The Saint-Rémi Basilica is located in the historic centre of Reims, close to the famous Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral. Very conveniently, you can easily visit both monuments in one day.

The hotel Au Tambour in Reims recommends a visit to the Saint-Rémi Basilica and its museum, located inside a cloister. Discover this building and explore it in depth during a visit to Reims...


A little history...


The Basilica of Saint Remi is named after the bishop Saint Remi who baptized Clovis, the first king of the Franks. This event was the origin of the famous legend of the Holy Ampoule, which sealed the birth of the kingdom of France.

Built on the site of an ancient abbey founded in the 6th century and enlarged over the following centuries, it has become an important place of worship over time, and has also played a crucial role in the history of France, notably during the coronations of many French kings.


Why visit the Basilica of Saint-Rémi in Reims? 


After Reims Cathedral, the Basilica of Saint-Remi is the most famous church in Reims. It is one of the most remarkable achievements of Romanesque art in northern France.

The 126 m long building impresses by its depth and the feeling of intimacy it gives. The Basilica of Saint-Rémi is a remarkable example of Gothic architecture.

It has an impressive facade, beautiful stained glass windows, elaborate stone vaults and a large nave that catches the eye of visitors...


What to see when you visit the Basilica of Saint-Rémi?


The Basilica of Saint-Rémi is home to many historical treasures. Built in the 11th century, it houses the tomb of Clovis and the holy ampulla in the centre of the gothic choir.

It also contains the relics of Saint Remi and a gilded bronze shrine containing the remains of the bishop.
