Trip Planner: Europe / France / Bourgogne-Franche-Comte / Haute-Saone / Ronchamp / Historic Sites / Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut
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.

l entrée a 8 euros est un peu chere pour une visite ponctuelle que j aime renouveller pour la beaute de l edifice et du site more »the entrance to 8 euros is a bit expensive for a single visit I love renew for the beauty of the building and the siteView original
I had gone to Dijon to see people who had known me for a short time since meeting them in London. This vacation was my last long stay in France mostly in the eastern part of the country. It took place... more »
Bien que je déteste Le Corbusier et toutes ses réalisations plus laides et plus foireuses les unes que les autres, j'ai fait le détour en passant dans le coin histoire de voir si c'était aussi moche e... more »Although I hate Le Corbusier and all of his accomplishments more ugly and more half-assed each others, I made a visit by the way in the corner just to see if it was as ugly in real life than on the pictures. I was very disappointed not being able to watch this horror closely since it was literally caught by a fricophile brotherhood that makes pay 8 euros the visit. It was just bad, now it's ugly and expensive. If you really like the beautiful architecture go further afield visit Luxeuil baths.View original
Wonderful light experience. And I have been studying this place... The play of light is very nice... Ar Le Cob had successfully achieved it.. and giving us architect a lesson..
Excellent! Getting there is tough, but well worth the trip. Entry fee is reasonable and staff did a good job preserving and presenting this architectural treasure. Still in use by nuns and the community today!

Nice, work of art...but not five star. Worth a visit though if in the area.
Off the beaten path - needs a car, and too bad it was overcast making us miss the light filtering through the amazing windows. Otherwise Corbusier's best work
Le Corbusier's masterpiece of architecture. See also church down in the village, which is very nice too.
