Notre Dame, Dijon

4.5
#2 of 20 in Historic Sites in Cote d'Or
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.

    Go on wiki to know the history of the church. It's splendid, bringing together past and present. A must-see place.
