Notre-Dame de Reims is the Roman Catholic cathedral of Reims, where the kings of France were once crowned. It replaces an older church, destroyed by a fire in 1211, which was built on the site of the Basilica where Clovis was baptized by Saint Remi, Bishop of Reims, in AD 496. That original structure had been erected on the site of the Roman baths. As the Cathedral, it remains the seat of the Archdiocese of Reims. A major site for tourism in the it had half a million visitors in 2006.
