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.

A chapel in the middle of nowhere, constructed by Le Corbusier. As improbable as it seems, it is real, even though hard to believe even when standing in front of it. Perhaps one his most successful an... more »

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.
