Notre Dame, Dijon

(4.5/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Spot gargoyles perched on the façade of Notre Dame de Dijon, an early 13th century Gothic cathedral featuring slender columns, original stained glass, and the famous 14th century Jacquemart Clock. Go inside to view the most sacred item, the Black Virgin, also known as Our Lady of Good Hope. As you leave, go to the right side of the cathedral, look six feet above the ground, then rub the head of the famous Dijon Owl with your left hand for good luck. Use our Dijon trip builder to visit Notre Dame on your trip to Dijon, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • THEY CONTEMPLATE YOU FOR CENTURIES. The old world didn't catch on their faces filthy, magical and all different... Smartphones and others make them giggle. They all enjoyed the beautiful gargoyles. So raise the nose, their ugliness will fascinate you, because these are they the Stars of our history. They watch us, immutable. The Jacquemart family that works some hours will make their number just for you, as long as you are there at the right time. Look up to the Bell Tower and watch the ingenuity of our ancestors. No 3D, a work of craftsmanship that time will never erase. A wonder...

  • It is a Beauty and must see in Dijon. Architectural marvel which on a relaxed Sunday afternoon may inspire you to search for inner peace and forget happening around you.
