Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • See again and again. The whole is of rare beauty and can only be amazed by the harmony of the building as of those of the small details that come with it: stained glass, furniture...

  • Fantastic architecture of Le Corbusier and Renzo Piano. A place of prayer and contemplation, here it is worth to stop.

  • A very nice place that inspired a lot the Corbusier (Chapel), Renzo piano (Monastery of the Poor Clares) and a little proved (Bell near La Chapelle) amazing what that can do a private association when she has the passion and faith, not sorry to have contributed by our visit to this lovely dynamic
