Reims Cathedral

Reims Cathedral

Reims, FR

Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral is known to have been the site of almost all the coronations of the kings of France since the 11th century. It was here that Clovis, the first king of the Franks, was baptized at the turn of the 5th and 6th centuries, an event retrospectively considered to be the foundation of the French monarchy. The current Gothic cathedral was built from the 13th to 14th centuries, on a site where cathedrals have been built since the 5th century. The building was severely damaged during the First World War, but has been rebuilt and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991.

Rennes Cathedral

Rennes, FR

The current site of the cathedral has been used as the seat of a bishopric since the 6th century. It is likely that it was built in place of an older sanctuary. The old building was completely replaced by a Gothic church in the 12th century. In 1490, the tower and the western facade of the Gothic church collapsed. An endless reconstruction of the western massif was undertaken, which lasted 163 years and resulted in the granite facade that we know today, which is largely in the classical style.
