A Royal Palace

 

Dating from the 16th century, The Palace of Tau takes its name from its plan, which resembles the shape of the letter T (tau in Greek). Its construction resulted from the conversion of the remains of a large Gallo-Roman villa. The transformation of the building into a Gothic structure was completed in 1710, and it became a location for Kings of France to reside and prepare themselves before their coronation in Reims Cathedral. The palace houses a large banquet room, called the Salle du Tau, which dates back to medieval times and hosts a huge 15th century fireplace.

 

Visitors can also enjoy the Musée de l’Œuvre within the palace itself. Managed since 1972 by the Centre des monuments nationaux, the palace houses statuary from the cathedral and two safety vaults containing reliquaries with valuable items from French kings, such as chalices, the Talisman of Charlemagne (Charles the Great), and many other objects associated with coronation.

 The Palace of Tau is classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
