A rare blend of architecture and decoration
When you visit a French city, like Paris and you have a one day to spare, I recommend you to visit Chartres 1 Hour and 22 Minutes Thalys – an Amazing Experience.
If you the adventure travel, flight into Paris by train to Vendome Square, District 1 and explore it few hours, enjoy it lunch at The Ritz and then to your plan destination. Contact Unique Voyages to tailored your dream travel plan in France.
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.
