La Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres (intérieur et Crypte)

Après avoir capturé les détails à l’extérieur de la Cathédrale, nous voici à l’intérieur …

Vous pourrez y voir sa superbe rosace, Notre Dame du Pilier, l’horloge astronomique, Notre Dame de la Belle Verrière, le zodiac de verre (il y en a un en pierres au portail Nord) et le très symbolique Labyrinthe (accessible uniquement les Vendredis entre le Carême et la Toussaint, sauf le Vendredi Saint). Il est le plus grand jamais construit dans une Cathédrale et certainement le dernier de son époque toujours “vivant” … et même sacrément embouteillé à certains moments (voir miniatures) 🙂

A la fin du billet, je vous emmène dans les profondeur où se situent les vestiges des cathédrales et églises qui ont précédé celle que nous voyons aujourd’hui (Crypte de Fulbert du XIème et de Saint-Lubin du IXème). Vous y rencontrerez Notre-Dame-Sous-Terre et dans les miniatures, la colonne de la crypte et le puits (d’origine Celtique) des Saints-Forts.


After capturing the details of the exterior of the Cathedral, here we are inside …

You will be able to see its superb rose window, Our Lady of the Pillar, the astronomical clock, Notre Dame of the Belle Verrière, the glass zodiac (there is one made of stones at the North gate) and the very symbolic Labyrinth (accessible only Fridays between Lent and All Saints, except Good Friday). It is the largest ever built in a Cathedral and certainly the last of his time still “alive” … and even pretty jammed sometimes (check the thumbnails) 🙂

At the end of the post, in its depths where are the remains of the cathedrals and churches that preceded the one we see today (Fulbert Crypt of the XIth and Saint-Lubin IXth). There, you will meet Notre-Dame-sous-Terre and in the thumbnails, the column of the crypt and the well (of Celtic origin) of the Saints-Forts.

  1. Magnificent photos! You were especially lucky to see the labyrinth not covered in chairs. And what did you think of the “restoration” of the interior? It had just begun when I was there a couple of years ago and I found it jarring and far too bright — but maybe the effect is better now that it’s nearing completion?
