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.

  • Name of the first disciples of Christ and Peter was a church there is only a very respectable history. And the most impressive was the garden. Only the buildings of the old town and the Green Garden was the place where really healed.

  • Beautiful beyond words!!!!!!!!!
  • Street lights show
  • 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!
  • One of the many churches of Chartres. She seems to be a bit neglected, to the point that I wonder to know if the entire budget goes to the Cathedral at the expense of other buildings. On the other hand, nothing exceptional in this church, except a pediment under renovation so we have not seen. the environment is nice and quiet.
