    When you see the signs or indications of "historic" or "medieval", we have the mouth water... Bitter disappointment! Out of the Cathedral, two interesting churches, there is not much to see in a sad area and abandoned. Some nice houses, little in fact, a most interesting river edge, not what break three-legged duck! There is so much better in our beautiful country...

    Please take time to browse through the streets of the historic center, admire the view of the garden of the bishopric, behind the Cathedral, then down Exchange Street and the street of the Grenets to the Church of St. Aignan. Then, down the stone staircase to the lower town and the river... A course that you back to the middle ages!

    We stopped just to see the cathedral as we were passing on our way to the port. We liked Chartres so much we think we will come back for a few days!  more »
