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.

If you visit Dijon even for a short time, you'll find this easily. The cathedral's front looks a little different from others. From the opposite its bell tower was not seen. So it looked like a square building from there. Entering, a beggar opens the door and asked us some money. It was not busy inside. Like the other cathedrals,... More

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
