The Cathedral Notre Dame de Chartres is an unrivalled masterpiece of gothic style of the twelfth century, it is classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.
The Cathedral Notre Dame de Chartres was built on a shrine of the first christians in Roman times. The church we see today is the fifth building following a number of devastations, the most recent being the fire of 1194. The reconstruction of the building on the form we know today began immediately after the tragedy. After the Saint Denis Cathedral, Chartres Cathedral is the largest and most complete brand of Gothic art in France. It is composed of a vast nave, in pure original style, the statues carved in the mid-twelfth century beyond its magnificent stained glass windows of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. In total, the building has more than 150 medieval windows with its beautiful stained glass windows that provide a spectacular light effect inside. In 1979 the cathedral was classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.
