  1. Reims

    Reims, a city in the Champagne-Ardenne region of France, lies 129 km east-northeast of Paris. Founded by the Gauls, it became a major city during the period of the Roman Empire. Reims played a prominent ceremonial role in French monarchical history as the traditional site of the crowning of the kings of France. The Cathedral of Reims played the same role in France as Westminster Abbey has in the United Kingdom. It housed the Holy Ampulla containing the Saint Chrême, allegedly brought by a white dove at the baptism of Clovis in 496. It was used for the anointing, the most important part of the coronation of French kings. Some sources regard Reims as the effective capital of the province of Champagne, given its size as by far the largest city in the region. The 2008 census recorded 188,078 inhabitants in the city of Reims proper, and 291,735 inhabitants in the metropolitan area.
