Not on the same scale as the cathedral, but still lovely to visit while walking through town. Restoration has not progressed as far, so it is interesting to compare the structure with the other cathedral.

I was impressed by the outside of the Eglise, highly impressive buttresses attract you, but the inside looked sad and gloomy. There is still very attractive painted glass inside, but the place looked neglected. I was the only person inside the Eglise, and then a...More

This involves a pretty good walk up and down the various old town streets and stairs leading from Chartres Cathedra. and requires good shoes. Don't wear sandals. We visited early when services were being conducted and only photographed the exterior, but it was certainly worthwhile.

Well worth a visit even after seeing the Cathedral. Interesting to see stained glass windows which are able to be opened, never seen that before. The glass was all removed during WW11 and stored.

This was my favourite church in Chartres. It is neglected, but there are traces of it former glory and some poignant vignettes of times past. Somehow the simplicity of this site is what makes it a sanctuary for all and not just for the devout....More

Chartres is more than just its magnificent cathedral. Of course, that is the major draw of the town, but if you have time, explore the old city itself, which is to the south of the cathedral and extends downslope to the river. St-Pierre is in...More

Down the hill, not so grand as the Notre Dame but again lots of stained glass. This Church is also illuminated at night when the en lumieresare are on.It will always be in the shadow of the Notre Dame.

Worth the short walk from the Cathedral. We were lucky enough that a local man was in the church and gave us a little tour and information about the different sections of the church (not a scam...just a nice chap). Very interesting and a welcome...More
