Palais du Tau and Notre-Dame de Reims... Jewels in the Crown in the Cité des Sacres.
Fêtes Johanniques, when the procession of Medieval characters – and mostly significantly Jeanne d’Arc and Charles VII – converge on the cathedral in the annual commemoration of the 1429 coronation. Orbis Pictus, has been held to great effect in the halls and chapels of this monument since 2010. Likewise, many exhibitions have been set out here over the years and the association Carnet de Bals has organised Second Empire-themed dances to tap into a spirit of living history.
