église St Pierre, Chartres

4.0
The Gothic medieval church, église St Pierre, has glorious medieval stained glass from the 14th century, a time that has very little representation in windows. Next to the choir, one of the windows representing the Old Testament is among the oldest stained glass dating back to the late 13th century.

This has been a religious site going back to before the ninth century, but the Norman invasions destroyed the original structures, except the dungeon. Rebuilt in 1320, recent archaeological digs have uncovered older tombs. This quiet church is not very touristy, allowing you to enjoy a peaceful moment listening to the organists who play most every day.

  • This is the old church hotel is located down the Hill a bit from the Cathedral. The pale somewhat compared with stained-glass windows of the Cathedral boasts a one of the most beautiful in the world, but the stained-glass windows of this church is beautiful. What very few people come here to explore the little visitors. Stained-glass on light from the inside in the summer night lights, was beautiful.

  • It is a church that when it is illuminated with the lights (lights of chartres) is beautiful l ' outside but the day we enter, and there, there she is in very bad condition. the contrast is surprising.

  • A very interesting building, clearly deserving a better development and better maintenance. Maybe he suffers from 'competition' to the Cathedral, and a location (below the city) a bit less obvious to pedestrian access? Anyway, the Church is worth a visit. Furthermore, projections on the facades in Chartres in lights are superb and not to be missed under any circumstances!

  • This is an old abbey church , near the river in Chartres, There are some lovely stained glass windows. There is an archeological area where some tombs were unearthed. The flying buttresses are just asking to be photographed. A neat stop when walking around Chartres.
  • Beauuuuutiful!
  • A church with a history. Although it seems abandoned, worth taking a few minutes and see the stained glass, the floor, the height of the ship.
