Reims can be proud of possessing four historic buildings inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List: the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Tau Palace, the Saint-Remi Basilica, and the Saint-Remi Museum.

The jewel of the city, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, is unusual in that it has been the place of coronation for 33 kings of France from 816 to 1825. Clovis was also baptised in this place in 498. The architectural harmony and remarkable statuary of this 13th-century building make it a masterpiece of Gothic art. Also, not to be missed in the city: Place Royale square, surrounded by arcades, and Place Drouet-d’Erlon Square with its lively cafés, shops, and restaurants. The museum-mansion Le Vergeur, installed in a mansion of the 13th and 16th centuries, is home to art objects, furniture, and paintings. Famous for its buildings, the City of Art and History of Reims is also well known for the cellars of its prestigious champagne houses.
