France : Reims cathedral celebrates its 800th birthday


Reims cathedral will be celebrating its 800th birthday and after many long years of renovation, this Gothic jewel has at last recovered its original grace. Both the Smiling Angel and Chagall’s stained glass window, as well as all of its 2300 statues including the famous Queen of Saba, the cathedral is once again the glorious historical sanctuary where the kings of France were consecrated.
