Dijon Cathedral

Go into the crypt of this historic cathedral to learn about its intriguing past and get a sense of the structure’s grandness.

Dijon Cathedral is an early 14th-century Gothic church known for its fascinating museum and tall columns and spires. Its twin towers present one of the most recognizable icons of the city, making it a French national monument. Enjoy the eeriness of this old giant, from its gargoyles outside to the subterranean tomb inside.

The church serves as a museum as well as a place of worship. Peruse the intriguing relics from the Middle Ages as well as fascinating Roman artifacts. Descend the steps to the crypt to see the sarcophagus of Saint-Bénigne. Note the Romanesque décor of the tomb.

Appreciate the acoustics that help enrich choral performances. Take a walk around the spacious nave and admire the sheer size of this large church built during the late 1200s and early 1300s. Note the tall columns inside the church and inspect the impressive double rows of stained-glass windows.

See the impressive church in the evening, when it is illuminated in warm light. It is particularly attractive at sunset. Come to the church to enjoy the silence and warmth, away from the hustle of city life. Capture photos of the church from the wide road leading to its complex façade, which implements features of Romanesque and Gothic architecture.

The Roman Catholic church is also known as the Saint-Bénigne Cathedral, honoring the city’s saint, who was a 3rd-century martyr. The church was initially a Benedictine abbey. It’s free to enter the cathedral and its museum. There is a charge to see the crypt. Participate in one of the frequent Masses to appreciate the beauty and functionality of the church.

Dijon Cathedral is less than a 10-minute walk west from the Square des Ducs in the center of the city. It stands next to the St. Philibert Church, the Théâtre Dijon Bourgogne - Parvis Saint-Jean and the Théâtre des Feuillants. Take a bus to the center of the city or walk from the nearby attractions to reach the cathedral.
