Chartres Cathedral


Chartres is located in north-central France, south-west of Paris.

The city is famous for its imposing Notre-Dame cathedral. Completed in 1220, the Gothic-style cathedral boasts 2 huge spires, flying buttresses, Romanesque sculptures, a floor labyrinth and detailed rose windows. It is notable for its stained glass windows in shades of blue.

The nearby International Stained Glass Centre offers workshops and exhibitions on the art of stained glass.
