Trip Planner: Europe / France / Bourgogne-Franche-Comte / Haute-Saone / Ronchamp / Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut
Completed in 1954, Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut is one of the finest examples of work by Franco-Swiss architect Le Corbusier, and one of the most important examples of 20th century contemporary religious architecture. Inside, you'll marvel at the small pieces of stained glass--that glows from the sun's rays like rubies, emeralds, and amethysts of all shades--set deep within the walls, which are sometimes ten ft thick. This pilgrimage chapel houses a statue of the Virgin Mary rescued from the ruins of the previous chapel destroyed during WWII. Using our custom trip planner, Ronchamp attractions like Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Even it was a short visit because we just arrived there 40 minutes before closing (5pm), we could enjoy the church. It’s quite big but there are not many seats. You have a great view on the mountains (with some snow). It’s really clean and there are many places to go.
A must visit if you are on the road between Lyon/Dijon and Strasbourg or if you just live in France. One of the most iconic constructions of Le Corbusier, and no doubt that is worth visiting it. The interior light game is also great! Easy to reach from Belfort.
