Chapelle Notre-Dame du Haut, Ronchamp

Must see · World heritage site · Architectural Building · Religious Site
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.

  • 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.
