Tours et trésor de la cathédrale de Chartres

A rare blend of architecture and decoration.

A destination for pilgrims for over a thousand years, the Cathedral of Chartres, located on the plain of Beauce, was severely damaged by a number of fires. The façade and one of the spires date from the 12th century, the second spire was built in the 16th century on a 12th century base while the nave and chancel go back to the 13th century. 
From the top of the Jehan de Beauce tower, visitors can enjoy superb views of the surrounding country and take a close-up look at the Cathedral's Gothic architecture.

Cathedral designated world heritage site by UNESCO.
