Church of Notre-Dame of Dijon

4 reviews of Church of Notre-Dame of Dijon

Very original

The Church of Our Lady of Dijon is a masterpiece of Gothic style, from the 13th century. It's a part, together with the rest of the city's medieval centre and the Palace of the Dukes, of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was built around 1220. It's quite small, but is one of the most beautiful churches in the region. Inside, you can see the Virgin of Good Hope, which used to be called the Black Madonna. It bears the arms of the city of Dijon. I like the main facade, it's very original. It's flat, carved stone, and seems more like a palace facade than a church. You don't realize until you enter the nave that it's a religious building.
