Reims Cathedral was, since the Middle Ages, the place where the consecration ceremony of the kings of France was held. The current building, from the 13th century, is erected on the 5th century Merovingian cathedral, in which Clovis was baptized, causing the conversion of the Franks to Christianity. She was called a “martyr” after the First World War for being bombed by the Germans, who saw her as a national symbol of France.

The main façade, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, stands out, as well as its elaborate sculptures and its collection of tapestries. One of its most famous stained glass windows is a work by Marc Chagall
