Following the sign on the road to finding out the little owl. A good exercise to work out before you are getting a glass of wonderful Bourgogne wine!

Worth stopping by and seeing. Beautiful architecture and surrounding. If you liked visiting other cathedrals I am sure you will like this one too.

This cathedral has one of the rare 'black' virgins which isn't all that black really but interesting. If you look at the sculptures over the entrance to the cathedral you'll see all of the heads have been cut off during the French Revolution

In many respects even better than the cathedral, Notre Dame is easily Dijon's foremost Gothic church. The state of preservation is mind-blowing, reminding me more of Gothic revival than the original thing. Excellent stained glass and tracery, but then France cannot be beaten here

Lots of Gargoyles go check this place out at night....look up! The church is actually architecturally brilliant, but the locals sort of ignore it, so do tourists so worth a visit.

Although we didn't go inside, I was in gargoyle heaven photographing the fake gargoyles on the front facade. The Jaquemart has an amusing story that can be found in the Owl trail booklet.

The Owl on Notre Dame is where you can make a wish. I made a wish for my daughter and an owl showed up on her patio! He was watching out for her as I asked!

Right in the middle of the little owl trail, this cathedral dominates the city central skyline. Very beautiful interior and you are free to come and go as you wish.

It was not a "wow factor" church. It was very peaceful and prayerful. The windows were beautiful. I would like to have been at services there.
