Chapel of Nôtre Dame du Haut

Nestled on the French Swiss German border is the village of Ronchamp, and on the hills outside is a truly remarkable church.

Chapel at Ronchamp

Local Art teacher Richard Le Goupillot's divine art inspiration is a whole church!

"Even though it has been many years since I visited the Chapel as a student I have very strong memories of it as an inspiring place with very modern architecture."

Designed by Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret) the architecture looks like it might have been built five years ago not in 1955.
