Chartres Cathedral
12th Century Gothic


The 300 narrow, winding steps to the bell tower 
reward the adventurous climber with a quiet and lofty view of Chartres 
as well as intricate details.  


The cathedral artisans carved images of beasts and flowers 
in places where they would not be easily seen by anyone but God.


bon dimanche
