If you visit Dijon, you must see this place. In the middle of old town it's stands as a monument for gotic style architecture. Very impressive and gorges

Sat in on a service. Very moving, yet peaceful. Soaring architecture. Small tourist information point and you can buy guides

From the 13th century, a great façade with gargoyles, gothic arches and stonework and the clock with figurines. A must see if visiting Dijon

The western facade has 3 tiers of amazing gargoyles. Inside you will see wonderful gothic arches on the nave south side. The black Madonna statue is no longer black having had its colour altered in 1960's. Look up the lantern tower inside. The campanile, metal sits on top of the clock with figurines. Worth a visit.

Yes, a beautiful church with architectural points of interest, but it appears at least 80% of the tourists are looking for la chouette. Beautiful building in a fun area.

A very old cathedral, 12th or 13th century. Stunning photo ops of the outside are available. It is right along the Owl's trail but then again you can't miss it with its' spiral. Beautiful!

This church is of 13th century architecture and if you look closely you will see rows of gargoyles staring down at you. Not your typical reason to visit a church but a good reason to see the gargoyles and admire the architecture.

We came upon this church while strolling through the old town and were immediately taken by its design, particularly the rows of gargoyles which are pretty striking. The church seems to be closed at the time of our visit so we didn't manage to explore the interior. The building is clearly one of the most notable in Dijon and should... More
