CHARTRES CATHEDRAL TOUR
Private Chartres guided tour of the cathedral with your expert tour guide: admire the amazing stained-glass windows from the XIIIth century and the veil of the Blessed Mary.
Designated "a masterpiece" by the UNESCO, the Cathedral of Chartres has loomed over its surroundings for almost a thousand years, with the "incomparable silhouette of a great vessel of stone and light, above an ocean of wheat", according to the poet Charles Péguy.
Located one hour away from Paris, take a journey back to the medieval art and architecture. With this private guided visit of the Cathedral of the Lady of Chartres, you will be able to understand the key to its history, why the Chartres Cathedral has always been of high importance since ancient times: the importance of the prophetic cult by the druids ceremonies, its strong links with the cult of the Virgin Mary, its pilgrimage importance, why this was the site of King Henri IV's coronation (and not in Paris) the originality of its flying buttresses, the messages of the statues on the porches, tympana and lintels, and so much more!
We recommend you to bring your binoculars to truly enjoy the beauty of the stained-glass windows.
As a reminder we only give private Chartres tours (no shared/semi-private tours).
