"Inside the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres" Chartres Things to Do Tip by mvtouring

Chartres Things to Do: 161 reviews and 508 photos


The one thing I read about when researching the place prior to leaving for Europe, was the fantastic Cathedral. It seem that the town is best known for the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres, widely considered to be the finest gothic cathedral in France. Its historical and cultural importance is recognized by its inclusion on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. The abbey church of St Pierre, dates back to the 13th century. It contains, besides some fine stained glass, twelve representations of the apostles in enamel, created about 1547 by Léonard Limosin.

The inside of the church is just magnificent.
