Show sight on map

Lance St. Remy Monastery, a former Benedictine monastery in Lance, is now the Lance St. Remy Museum. Around 760, the Archbishop of Reims, Tilpin, founded the Monastery of St. Remy, where he founded a Benedictine religious community, which remained there until the French Revolution. The monastery experienced remarkable economic and spiritual development in the Middle Ages and an equally important revival in the 17th and 18th centuries. A light bulb containing chreme, or holy oil, was brought from the monastery of St. Remy during the anointing ceremony for the king at Reims Cathedral. The Abbey of St. Remy controls the diocese and two colleges belonging to its restricted area, one of which is St. Timothy's College.

3. Statue Baptème de Clovis

Show sight on map

The baptism of Clovis is the sacrament symbolizing the conversion of the Frankish king Clovis I to the Christian religion. The ceremony, organized by Bishop Remi on Christmas Eve, December 24 or 25 in the baptistery of the church which was on the site of the cathedral of Reims according to an almost unanimous tradition, comes at an uncertain date that is debated among historians. Historiography, based on the History of the Franks of Gregory of Tours, has long fixed this date at Christmas 496, after the battle of Tolbiac but it would rather be between 498 or 499 according to the majority of historians, even if some lean towards a later conversion, in 505 or even 508.

Western Front demarcation stones, also known as Bornes du Front and Bornes Vauthier, are monuments erected in France and Belgium to mark the limit of the German advance during the First World War. The stones were the idea of sculptor Paul Moreau-Vauthier, a veteran of the war, and were erected between 1921 and 1930. The total number of stones erected is unclear but it is thought that there were 118 official stones, of which 93 survive. The stones identify the army that held that sector in 1918 and are engraved with the text "Here the invader was brought to a standstill 1918" in English, Dutch, and French.
