Notre Dame de Beaune Collegiate Basilica

Dating back to 1120, this Romanesque church in the center of Beaune is best known for its impressive 15th-century tapestries. 

The Notre Dame de Beaune Collegiate Basilica is a key destination at the Place du Général Leclerc in central Beaune. The opening of the church in the 12th century made Beaune a Christian pilgrimage destination. As such, a visit to the church is essential to understanding the city’s history. Hear its bells resonating throughout the streets during your stay and step inside to see its famous tapestries. 

The church was constructed in the 12th century in the Romanesque style, characterized by semicircular arches, barrel vaults and high-set windows. A unique feature of the Notre Dame de Beaune Collegiate Basilica is its large shaded porch, which forms a dramatic entryway. Try to identify the Gothic elements added in the 16th century, including the bell tower and chapel. 

Take time to appreciate the famous 15th-century tapestries hanging in the sanctuary. The 19 panels made from silk and wool depict significant moments from the life of the Virgin Mary and are remarkably well preserved. 

Imagine the area during the Crusades, when many pilgrims and knights passed along the roads of Burgundy on the path to Jerusalem. To accommodate them, the dukes of Burgundy and the local clergy decided to build a large church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The church is often called the “Daughter of Cluny,” as the structure takes inspiration from the Cluny Benedictine monastery that was located in Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy. 

The church developed into an important pilgrimage site for Christians, like a small village, closed off from the rest of the town by a gate. As many as 30 members of the clergy lived in small houses on the streets that surround the church. Find the structures that are still standing on Rue d’Enfer and Rue Maizières.

In the summer, during Christmas and on other important holidays, there is often a festive light projection on the façade of the Notre Dame de Beaune Collegiate Basilica. 

Enter the basilica for free. Guided visits are available. Find the schedule at the tourist office. Pay a fee to visit the tapestries from April to December.
