Back in September, I went to Reims in France to visit Mary from the blog Sur les Pas d’Alice! I was lucky to have a really nice weather which was ideal to visit the city 🙂 There are several interesting landmarks to see in Reims which is full of history: The Mars Gate which is the oldest monument in the city, the abbey of Saint-Remi and off course the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Reims. Apart from these, it is also really nice to walk around the city centre and appreciate the eclectic architecture: art déco facades (don’t miss the rue de Mars for that), mansions etc. We also paid a visit to the Halles du Boulingrin where the city market is happening every Saturday and where you buy local products.
I must add that when I think about Reims, it always reminds me of my French history lessons from middle school with Clovis and Charlemagne whom were baptised and crowned in Reims back in the days… Reims is indeed a very important town in the French history as the Cathedral has been the crowning site for most French kings from the 9th century up until the 19th century. It’s even nicknamed “the city of the kings”! Don’t hesitate to enter the Cathedral to check out the interior, it is really worth it! While you are in Reims, I recommend you to also walk to see the lovely fountains of Solidarité and Subé.
Have a nice day!
