Spectacular. One of the very best Gothic cathedrals anywhere in Europe - must visit during daylight hours to see the astonishing stained glass at its best, must go to a service to appreciate what the building is there for, and must return in the evening for the astonishing light shows played onto the exterior.

Very lovely cathedral, and it is the central part of the Chartres light show, a fantastic light show presented every evening in Chartres.

Stumbled upon the amazing laser light and sound show after dinner our first night there. Simply mind-blowing and inspiring. Show appears on three of the walls of the cathedral. Went back the next day to gape at the wonderful stained glasswork inside.

The cathedral is a not-to-be-missed site when visting Cartres. It is easily accessible; parking is nearby.

Beautiful Cathedral with so much history. What a privilege to see the cloth Mother Mary gave birth to Jesus in.
The stain glass paintings were magnifique.

Quaint small town nice to walk around.
