Chartres is a small city located in the french countryside, one hour away from Paris. The city itself recently developped a lot and can be seen today as a comfortable place to live. But Chartres has actually always been famous for its very old but massive cathedral which can be even considered more impressive then Notre Dame de Paris.

Visitors are coming from all around the world to see the cathedral colorful stained glasses and two huge towers in distinct gothic styles. When entering the cathedral, you will be probably amazed by the choir. A detailed and impressive wall with hundred of small statues is surrounding the heart of the cathedral. But the choir itself (restored recently) is just outstanding. Colorful, massive and luxury without exageration !
