  IN LATE AFTERNOON SUNSHINE....

This Palace is located next to the Cathedral, which really is the very cor of the city.

It is the former palace of the ASrchbishop of Reims, rebuilt under King LKouis XIV by Robert de Cotte.
It has retained its palatial 13th Century chapel and the Gothic great Hall of Tau.

It was here that the FRENCH KINGS celebrated their coronations with abundant festivities, banquets....
It is a pity that the hall where these feasts too place was terribly damaged during the many wars of the last Centuries.

In this Palace are numerous statues, valuables, tapestries, sacramental gold & silver and sculptures from the Cathedral, relics and the coronation regalia dating from the coronation of KAREL X , CHARLES X.
This museum now also has a special CORONATION MUSEUM.

In between the CATHEDRAL and the Palais du Tau is the double-chapel which still has kept safe lots of its 13th Century beauty!
