Chartres Cathedral, also known as Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres, is an imposing gothic medieval construction. a true architectural wonder, considering the centuries traversed by the cathedral it is remarkably well preserved.

Built between 1194 and 1250, the cathedral still houses the Sancta Camisa, a tunic said to have been worn by Virgin Mary at Christ’s birth. Presumably given to the Church by the son of Charlemagne, this relic is considered today one of the most important relics of the Christian world. The guide will first give you explanations and descriptions about the outside, focusing on the 3 portals decorations. Then he will invite you to step in and discover the spectacular multi-coloured stain-glass windows.

Dating from the 12th and 13th centuries, it is one of the most important collections of stain-glass windows in the world and the reason why this cathedral has been appointed as an UNESCO world heritage site. The guide will invite you to explore the religious and secular scenes depicted on the windows, point to you the ancient labyrinth (1205) of the ground floor, and walk around the spacious nave, the superb choir wall, and the many other wonders this Cathedral has to offer.
