Dijon Cathedral

The Cathedral of Saint Benignus of Dijon, commonly known as Dijon Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic church located in the town of Dijon, Burgundy, France. It is a national monument and is dedicated to Saint Benignus of Dijon.

Originating as the church of the Abbey of St. Benignus, it became the seat of the Bishopric of Dijon during the French Revolution and has been the seat of the succeeding Archbishopric of Dijon since the elevation of the former diocese in 2002.

The present Gothic cathedral was built between 1280 and 1325, and was dedicated on 9 April 1393.
