The only characteristic city to have been entirely destroyed during the first world war.
Surrounded by the vineyards of Champagne and a few kilometres from Reims, Cormicy is the only «Petite Cité de Caractère» to have been entirely destroyed during the First World War. Its reconstruction in the 1920s and 1930s is exemplary. The main lines of its mediaeval layout were kept and the architecture is typically urban and non-rural. Even today the small town
has a very uniform heritage with houses and other beautiful residences built with the same materials: locally made siliceous clay bricks and roofs covered with red tiles. Only civic buildings were rebuilt in stone with slate roofs: the church, the town hall and the post office. The town of Cormicy is well worth visiting for these reasons and for the exceptional character of its reconstruction.
