"Cathedrale de Notre-Dame de Chartres" Chartres Things to Do Tip by Dabs

Chartres Things to Do: 161 reviews and 508 photos

The Cathedrale is currently undergoing some major restoration work, you can see some flashes of the brilliance that will exist once they are finished. The stone interior has darkened over the years but the section that has been cleaned is now a brilliant white. Many of the stained glass windows have been restored as well and the difference between them and the untouched ones is remarkable.

The cathedral is free to visit, open for visitors 8:30am-7:30pm. If you want to visit the crypt there is an admission fee or if you want a guided tour which looks to include climbing the tower there is a separate admission, see the attached website for hours and fees.
