Notre Dame, Dijon

4.8
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Dijon
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.

  • The Notre Dame church is the symbol of Dijon, with its majestic thin columns and arches that enchant the visitors. This masterpiece of Burgundian Gothic, built between 1220 and 1250, with its original rectangular façade between two corner turrets adorned with gargoyles is definitely the most interesting monument of the city. It houses an ancient wooden statue of a Black Madonna.

  • Away from the Office, liked the sound of the Bell. Street ago the owls located beside the sculpture is always so many people.
