About a month before we left France The Husband and I decided we needed one last trip to a historical site in France. We enjoyed le Mont-Saint-Michel so much that we knew our choice needed to be another church. They just don’t make them in America like they did in Europe! So, off we went to the town of Chartres, about an hour train ride from Paris that cost us all of €12 each.
The town itself is beautiful. Full of winding streets paved by cobblestone and with churches on almost every corner, it is a quintessential stereotypical French town. Now, I have to say that we had been told so so so much about Chartres, so we were expecting a lot. And it didn’t disappoint! But I will say that Chartres itself was not our favorite church in the town — that will come in the next post!
