Create an itinerary including Chapelle Foujita
Chapelle Foujita was constructed at Rue de la Mars in 1965-1966 by the Japanese artist, Tsuguharu Foujita. It is most famous for the frescos he hand painted in the interiors. A converted catholic, Foujita designed the chapel, all of the ironwork, stained glass, and the sculptures. At the age of 80, he painstakingly painted the frescoes in blues, greens, yellows, and browns with Christian themes, as well as with depictions of his friend and his wife. The Catholic diocese consecrated the chapel in 1966, and France listed it as an historic monument in 1992.

  • The paintings are very beautifull. Worthwhile visiting! And across the street you will find Mumm, a producer of fine champagne

  • We like Foujita's work and made it a point of visiting the chapel in Reims. It is a lovely airy place. The chapel is small so its not a long excursion.

  • Although it is truly beautiful, one should check the time of opening before visiting👍
  • Mr Fujita, known as a École de Paris’s painter was baptised at Cathédrale Notre Dame de Reims. His artworks are unique, sophisticated and somewhat lovely. Quite interesting to see since its atmosphere is kind of religious and french-Japanese mixed, plus full of hope.
  • I loved the exterior of the church, but unfortunately I did not get to see the interior because it was closed despite the fact that it said on the gate it was supposed to be open from 2 to 6. I went there at 2:15 and then later again at 4:30 but it was not open. I recommend that you plan other activities alongside this if you are planning on visiting because it probably will not be open.
  • It's truly beautiful..
  • A small chapel, with much wall art painted by a Japanese artist who converted to Catholicism A few euros to get in, only really needs 15 minutes to take it all in .
