This beautiful church dates fro the 1100's.
It has three entrances and a clock tower which is quite dominating of Beaune's 'skyline'.
Inside there are very old tapestries, well preserved.
The church has Romanesque and Gothic elements.
Notre Dame was built in Burgundian Romanesque style in the 12th and 13th centuries, but some parts were added from the 14th to the 16th century and the church was restored on a project by famous architect Viollet-le-Duc (the one who worked at Notre-Dame de Paris) in the 19th century.
The façade has a large porch and there is a square bell tower with a dome on the vault. I don't know why my father left the bell tower out of the photo.
The inside consist of a nave with two aisles, the transept and an ambulatory choir. However, the main attraction are the five tapestries about the Life of the Virgin woven in the second half of the 15th century on designs by Pierre Spicre, located behind the high altar.
