Tour dedicated to a specific theme

"The key is the light"

The Chapel is suffused with a soft and deeply moving light which raises feelings towards the Sacred.

Le Corbusier used subdued lighting, colours and drawings with symbolical meanings on the window panes.

These are the secrets of Le Corbusier’s ways of creating, and you will no longer miss them after an amazing “architecture walk” about the place.

Tour dedicated to a specific theme

“The hill from every angle”

Iconic of modern and contemporary architecture in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, the Hill of Notre-Dame-du-Haut leaves no one indifferent. A specialist will take you for an architecture tour around the works of Le Corbusier, Jean Prouvé and Renzo Piano. The shell (roof) of the Chapel, generally closed to the public, is the apex of this unique visit. Inspired by clever natural and technical shapes, this innovative place is the most puzzling in Le Corbusier’s building.

Visit available for groups from 2 to 8 persons. A good physical condition is required (Visiting regulations must be agreed to and signed down beforehand).

Day of Pilgrimage to Notre-Dame du Haut : spending one day with Marie

Day of Pilgrimage to Notre-Dame du Haut: spending one day with Marie
“Come spend a day with Marie in Notre-Dame du Haut (Ronchamp). She is expecting you and she will know how to listen to you. For dozens of centuries, pilgrims have come to pray to Marie and to confide the joys and sorrows of their everyday lives to her. They have come from near or faraway countries. Why wouldn’t you? We are expecting you.
On the hill, you will find silence, peace and contemplation. You will feel how much Le Corbusier’s and Renzo Piano’s buildings mingle with meditation and prayer. Art raises our souls towards He who is the source of any inspiration. You will be welcomed by all those who keep this spiritual hill alive. You will be received with kindness and special attention during this one-day pilgrimage.”


Jean-Luc BOUILLERET
Archbishop of Besançon
