Palais du Tau, Reims

 

MAP OF THE FRENCH PILGRIMS' ROADS TO SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA

EARLY MEDIEVAL FRENCH SAINTS, KINGS AND QUEENS

 

 

The Palais du Tau is the old archbishop's palace next to the cathedral, restored after a bad burning in WW I.  It contains an interesting collection of stone sculpture which used to be in or on the cathedral, as well as some tapestries.  And if you are a train spotter, the lower floors are full of model trains.
