Notre Dame, Dijon

4.6
#3 of 9 in Sightseeing in Dijon
Religious Site Historic Site
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.
