The cathedral of Chartres forms one of the most spectacularly exciting ensembles of medieval architecture, sculpture and stained-glass windows.
Erected mostly between 1194 and 1260, the building remained relatively unharmed by the calamities of history, in particular the Religious Wars and the French Revolution.
The most prominent symbol of the cultural revival of the 12th century and a glorious rebuttal of the commonly heard notion of the "Dark Middle Ages", Notre-Dame of Chartres was designated World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979.
