“Stunning!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

The beautiful Cathedrale St-Benigne in Dijon is a must-see. It is visible from many areas of the city as you walk around and is well worth a visit 10/10

“You cannot miss it - it is so central”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Another historic Cathedral. The architecture is quite original. I witnessed a choir concert in the evening which was nice. The little owl on the outer side of it is absolutely the biggest attraction.

“get into the crypt”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Ok, its a big old church like lots of them in France but I did like the spooky crypt underground especially if you are left to yourself. Its quiet, cold and spooky just right for a ghost meeting.

“Good Architecture”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Nice cathedral on the owl trail. No charge and comfortable to go into (especially on cold day) and sit and enjoy the statutes. No need to go into the crypt unless you want to see the arches of the older church; however the brochure says they are still excavating and expect to find more of the older church, so you may have a different experience.
