Chartres en Lumières Summer 2017 Chartres fr

A spectacular display of art and history

Beginning in 2003, each year  from April to September, more than 20 monuments and major attractions in Chartres are illuminated with stellar light designs. The luminous artwork displayed during this event is by artist Xavier de Richemont. Some of the historic sites include: the Towers of Chartre Cathedral (a designated world heritage site by UNESCO), the old Episcopal Palace, the Chartres theater, the multimedia library, bridges, churches, and much more. Experience these historic sites from a new, unique perspective with this light show. It's an experience that you will not want to miss out on!
