What do we like?

Grégoire de Tours represented this church as one of the most important in Reims in the 5th century.

Close to the abbey of Saint-Remi, it was rebuilt in the 11th century but incorporated into houses after the Revolution. In 1991, archaeological excavations enabled its ground plan to be rediscovered.

A group sculpted by Daphné du Barry was erected here in 1996, on the ‘15th centenary’ of the baptism of Clovis by Saint Remi (traditionally dated 496). However, this event took place in the cathedral, and not in this church.
