Discovering gallo-roman remains

Discover two remarkable sites in Reims: the Cryptoporticus and the Mars Gate.

The Cryptoporticus is located at the Place du Forum. Built around the year 200, it was used for grain storage. Admission is free, but to really appreciate it we recommend you choose the guided tour

The Mars Gate, built at the same time, is one of the four gateways to the ancient city. It is richly decorated with mythological themes that have deteriorated over the years. That's the reason restoration is underway. A few more months of patience are required before you can rediscover it.

The rich collection of the museum of fine arts

The composition of the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts is surprising. It illustrates the main artistic trends from the 16th century to the present day. You'll need at least 1.5 hrs there to appreciate the wealth of its collections. Poussin, Monet, Renoir, Foujita, Delacroix and Corot: beautiful surprises are here to discover as you tour the rooms. Temporary exhibitions also enrich the permanent collections several times a year. In short, our museum compares very favourably with even the greatest museums.

The unexpected foujita

The Chapel of Our Lady of Peace, also known as the Foujita Chapel, is an astonishing construction designed entirely by the Japanese artist, after his conversion to Catholicism. Admission is included in the admission ticket to the Museum of Fine Arts. This little building, located right opposite the Mumm Champagne Cellar Tours is definitely worth a visit for its originality. The painter expressed his faith in sumptuous frescoes with soft colours conducive to meditation. Our advice to you is to choose the tour with commentary. Explanations are essential to fully absorb this place that is full of surprises.
