Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut, Ronchamp

(4.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Completed in 1954, Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut is one of the finest examples of work by Franco-Swiss architect Le Corbusier, and one of the most important examples of 20th century contemporary religious architecture. Inside, you'll marvel at the small pieces of stained glass--that glows from the sun's rays like rubies, emeralds, and amethysts of all shades--set deep within the walls, which are sometimes ten ft thick. This pilgrimage chapel houses a statue of the Virgin Mary rescued from the ruins of the previous chapel destroyed during WWII.

  • The visit is really interesting perspective for the discovery of the architecture of the XX th century. The Corbusier has what we surprised. The booklet for children has helped our 3 children (8-7-6) really interested in this place. Finally, the home to the community of Clares was the icing on the cake! We highly recommend!

  • Surprising. A beautiful site and anchored in the landscape architecture. The monastery, discreet, is also well integrated into the Hill.
