Reims Cathedral

The Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral has a very long history of damage, rebuilding and growth. Most recently it was shelled by Germans at the beginning of the First World War and the resulting fire damaged or destroyed important parts of the Cathedral.   Reconstruction began in 1919 and continues today.   Some of the stained glass is exceptional, I particularly liked the work by Chagall designed in 1974.
