Notre-Dame Collegiate Church of Semur-en-Auxois

Interesting
The 11C collegiate church of Our Lady was restored in the 19C by Viollet-le-Duc. As soon as one enters, one notices the narrowness of the central nave and the height of the vaulting. Several chapels open onto the north side. One of these houses a 15C polychrome Entombment. Behind the pulpit, note the stone ciborium, decorated with a 5m high carved pinnacle (15C). Make your way to the chancel; its chapels, lit by stained-galss windows, some of them from the 13C, are superb. From the garden, there is a fine view of the East end and of the tower surmounted by a spire (56m).
