This castle-like structure with conical towers was built in the 16th century. It was once the main entrance into the enclosure of the Cathedral of Reims and led into its northern entrance. While la Porte du Chapitre is no longer in use as the canonical entrance, the structure has been preserved and incorporated into the construction of adjacent buildings. The walkway through it still leads to the cathedral via a long cobbled path.

Address: rue Carnot
