Notre Dame, Dijon

(300+ reviews on the web)
Religious 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.

  • We walked by Notre Dame during the day and at night. I have to say the Gargoyles were worth walking by at night. Totally intimidating. The inside is nice, but I quite honestly think it is worth a walk...  more »
  • Outside of the building needs renovation, but also within the stained glass Windows all the way are fantastic. The Church is located in a small square, if you visit, be sure to go into here, not just from the outside view, because the most beautiful parts of bent.

  • 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...
