Reims Notre Dame Cathedral Photos

Reims Cathedral (mostly completed 13thC) aka Cathedral of Notre-Dame, was the coronation place of 25 French Kings from 1223 to 1825, including crowning of Charles VII in 1429 in the presence of Joan of Arc. The cathedral is remarkable for the richness of the exterior carvings & statuary as well as its stained glass windows, including a set by Marc Chagall, and a section of Roman mosaic floor. The cathedral, as well as the town of Reims, was ruined during WWI, with post-war restoration largely financed by the Rockefeller Foundation.
