I think the finest church building I visited with a well proportioned interior, interesting transept windows. It was nicely furnished and with many twinkling candles, obviously well loved and cared for. Could have done without the ugly metal box, so out of place in amongst so much fine quality. The ancient statue was very powerful in her presence. Certainly not... More

Fabulous cathedral. Magnificent facade. Woth the visit just to see this. Thought that as the cathedral in the city of the Dukes of Burgundy it would be lavish. Not so. It has had a turmoiled past so perhaps has suffered over time

Well worth dropping in to see this stunning cathedral. Try and watch the clock tower on the hour, very amusing ancient automation

Great frontage that inspire vision of Notre Dame Paris. Disappointing church interior. Begging at church door is a concern.

Honestly the French Catholics of Dijon are blessed in the beauty of this church built by their forbearers. It elicits prayer silence in its visitors and sponsors music concerts that give one a taste of the angel choirs.

This church is very attractive inside. Of interest is the destruction of the statues outside, presumably during the Revolution. They were quite complete in their defacement.

Very interesting Gothic and medieval style church on the inside and the outside. Easy walking access from within the old town, definitely worth checking out. Recommended.

This fabulous church designed like a cathedral. but smaller has a fabulous mediaeval atmosphere because of the exquisite stained-glass, not all of it mediaeval but beautifully constructed in the 19th century. There is also a black Madonna. The church seems mainly famous for the gargoyles outside and the little owl but I was impressed by the atmosphere inside.

Especially the desig of the outside . Takes much time to see every detail. Primarely study of Gothic style recommended. Inside see the black Madonna. More information in the nearby tourist office.
