Overview

Highlights

  • Admire the architectural work sanctioned by Louis XIV that transported the palace from Antiquity into the classical age
  • Step inside this UNESCO World Heritage awarded palace and marvel at rich tapestries and jewels

Description

Called Tau for its distinctive T shape, this palace has played an integral role in France's history for more than a millennia. It once belonged to the Archbishop of Reims and underwent multiple renovations over the centuries – most notably by Louis XIV's architects.

Despite suffering heavy damage during WWI, the palace has been rebuilt to its original splendor. Today, you can step inside and admire the vaulted ceilings, see the older Gothic elements, and enjoy its manicured gardens.
