Reims in Marne Département, Champagne-Ardenne, France
Porte et Place du Chapitre de la Cathédral
16th century entrance with turrets, remnant from the canonical district.
The block between the cathedral, and Cloître, Trésor and Carnot streets, was reserved for priests. This included the enclosed cloister, the necessary buildings to house committees, schools and all necessary dependencies for the administration of their estate and exercise their stately jurisdiction over this part of the city (barns, cellars, and court prison). There were also shops, especially haberdasheries, booksellers and printers. Open to passersby during the day, the area was closed in the evening using this gate, built in 1531. Its carved wooden doors are now preserved in the Museum of Fine Arts.
Erected by la ville de Reims. (Marker Number 25.)
