palais du tau
reims


the crowning of kings


The Palais du Tau in Reims is the former Episcopal residence of the Archbishop of Reims, but better associated with the coronation of no fewer than 32 French kings, from the 11th century to Charles X in 1825.

Both the palace and the neighbouring cathedral are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Its splendour evokes memories of great coronations, while its sculptures, tapestries, costumes, ornaments, and collections of gold and silver create an exceptional collection, dating from the Middle Ages.
