It is amazing how the people of days gone by had the skills and knowledge to complete such works. This cathedral is a wonderful example of what our forefathers could do without the technology and tools that we have available today. My favorite part of the church is the owl. When you touch the owl you can only think of... More

While enjoying the sights of Dijon, take time to visit Notre Dame. The west front is particularly interesting, with its ranks of gargoyles and thin columns. Inside, there are lovely stained-glass windows. There is a stunning clock on the south tower, the Jacquemart clock.

You cannot fail to be impressed by this stunning piece of gothic architecture . It is very busy both inside and out. Easy to listen in on tours being given. Watch out for pick pockets they are rife. My uncle was in the hospital overlooking the Cathedral from his sick bed. Well worth it.

Driving up from Italy through to Paris me and my travelling partner had decided to stop at every city with a food related name so we stopped in Dijon (for mustard or "moutarde" as they say en francais) It felt like Dijon was nearly empty broken shutters on the hinges blowing in the wind was rather haunting. We visited this... More

This is not a huge cathedral, but it is attractive, with an impressive façade and subtly lit inside. Don't forget to step back and look at the Jacquemart clock on one of the lower roofs outside.

This was a very beautiful Cathedral like most of the churches in France. Very Ornate. Like most places in Dijon was a very easy walk.

A great little place to pop into while walking around Dijon. Lovely stained glass windows. Also a quiet place for some alone time of worn out by walking!

This church was built in the 13th century. The statue on the top of the church was stolen from Belgium in 1382 and presented to the city in recognition of their help in the war. Be sure to rub the stone owl on the left side of the church on the outer wall. It brings good luck.

We happened to park almost in front of the Cathedral, so naturally we decided to go in an have a look. This church is rather plain compared to many other cathedrals we have seen but it was interesting to read about its history
