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.

We were on the day of the museums and didn't pay anything for entry. We liked the place. New built church in an unusual style. You can stop for a short time, for half an hour or an hour. This will be enough to visit the church and visit the monastery garden with herbs, climb the pyramid and look at the world from above.
A celebration of concrete. Much better than I expected. Very interesting. A cross between organic and industrial shapes. You need to pay an admission fee to see the church which is unusual. The chaplains house looks austere as does the pilgrims lodgings. The chaplain refused to live there and it's hardly surprising. I've included some photos to illustrate.
Calm place in a lush green surroundings. The architecture is awesome as it is famous for it. You have to pay 10€ to visit the whole place though , which frankly speaking is a bit too much.
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.
A beautiful church built by a famous french architect known as Le Corbusier. Unlike the typical catholic cathedral with gothic or renaissance influence, this place offers surrealism mixed with minimalism in its architecture. When you go inside you would also see that the wall is decorated with colorful glass in different shapes and when the sun light hits on it, it projects a stunning lighting effects in the interior. Amazing and historical place, a must visit.
