The portals outside are extremely tall and dominate the view from a distance. The church is exposed on a big square, showing it off. It is gothic and very old and worth a visit inside to see the decorations.

This impressive gothic church is easy to see just down from Place de la Liberation. Predominantly built in the 16th century with some later additions. Some nice stained glass windows and relics of Blessed Elisabeth of the Trinity d1906.

The unusual church catches one's eye as you look down the street from the Art Museum. Do stroll over, look at the portals and step inside for a mix of artworks.

The Church of St. Michael is the third on this site, which is quite typical for large French cities. Its main facade unwittingly tells us that it was built for a long time. Having begun construction in 1497 in the late Gothic style on the money of the citizens of Dijon, it was interrupted in 1513. Dijon is besieged by the Swiss hired by Maximilian of Austria during another military adventure of Louis XII. To stop the bombing, they had to be bought off. At the expense of the collected funds for construction. The Dijon people were flexible people and the church was consecrated unfinished. God doesn't care. The towers and three portals of the facade were completed later, but in the Renaissance style. This is the fate of long-term cathedrals. The most recent were the towers, completed in 1659 and 1667. Inside, everything is strict. Gothic. The most interesting thing is in the side chapels. I liked a very beautiful sculptural composition in the chapel Trepass Adoration of the Magi.

The church located east from the dukes palace. Built in the 15 century with 3 beautiful entrances. A combine of gothic and renaissance. Looks amazing inside. Notre cathedral is more famous, but i liked this eglise much more.

The exterior of the church is large and imposing but inside it is both warm and majestic. There are some great stained glass windows. It is definitely worth a stop in as it's in centreville.

Dijon has many churches and cathedrals to look around but this is the one we chose.

Entrance is free and you can leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind as you enter the peaceful and cool building. It’s worth spending some time looking at the intricate carvings and taking in the immense building. I also enjoyed reading the story of the nun who became a saint, even through there’s not a lot in English here you can get the gist.

The teenagers didn’t appreciate the architecture and so sat outside utilising the city wide free WiFi!

Like many French churches and cathedrals, this cool atmosphere and a slight mouldy smell. I always like to sit for a while and keep the noisy world outside.

Lovely church in old part of town. Beautiful stained windows and lovely memorial to Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity. Dates back to 15th Century. Started in flamboyant gothic style this is well worth a visit. Entrance is free.
