Saint-Pierre Church in Chartres is not as well known as the Cathedral of our Lady of Chartres, but this 13th Century church is a Gothic masterpiece with some windows surviving from the 14th Century.



Built outside the original fortress walls of Chartres, it was built to withstand the assault of aggressive armies. Built, reconstructed, renovated over the centuries, it is currently undergoing restorative work in the high arches seen here.



Bon dimanche
