Reims is a principal city of the Champagne region of France. It is famous for its large cathedral (wonderfully restored after near destruction in the First World War) where Clovis was baptized, its sweet ‘pink cookies’, and the many champagne houses that operate there. (2020)

Next to the cathedral is the Palais de Tau which houses a lot of historic memorabilia as well as the treasury of the church
