Église Notre Dame information
A block north of the Palais des Ducs, this church was built between 1220 and 1240. Its extraordinary facade's three tiers are lined with leering gargoyles separated by two rows of pencil-thin columns. Atop the church, the 14th-century Horloge à Jacquemart , transported from Flanders in 1383 by Philip the Bold who claimed it as a trophy of war, chimes every quarter-hour.
