Experience

Highlights
  • Admire the sculpture of the Well of Moses almost 7 meters tall
  • Discover the ancient monastery of Champmol, the necropolis of the Dukes of Burgundy
  • See the chapel with an original portal from the 14th-century
Full description
Admire the Well of Moses, a hexagonal pillar almost 7 meters tall standing in a basin supplied by ground water. On each side of this pillar are niches framed by small columns with foliage-covered capitals. Each niche shelters a statue of six prophets from the Old Testament: Moses, Isaiah, Daniel, Zachariah, Jeremiah and David. Between them, you can see six angels whose expressions or gestures convey the sorrow of the Passion.

This is one of the most impressive sculptures from the end of the Middle Ages due to its powerful design, the realism of the faces and the costumes. Close to the Well of Moses, you can admire the 19th-century chapel built in a neo-Gothic style.

Of the original building, only the portal incorporated into the chapel remains. To enhance your visit, a sound montage will be provided in this chapel. This is a great opportunity to discover the Chartreuse of Champmol, which was once a major religious site during the time of the Dukes of Burgundy.
