Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres!

A defining characteristic of this edifice that makes it stand out from all the rest, is its two distinct towers, one of Romanesque design and the other Gothic. Some of the most beautiful and stunning stained glass windows adorn this edifice that had a most tumultuous history. This consecrated ground has seen a cathedral of some shape and size since the 4th century and actually, remnants of a merovegian cathedral exist today under the choir. An amazing place not to be missed as you tour through the French countryside.
