Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut, Ronchamp

(4.4/5 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.

  • 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 »
  • 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.

  • 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.
