A trip to Chartres is like taking a time machine back to the Middle Ages . The character of this city is created by narrow streets dotted with medieval houses, and it is sealed by the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral (similar to the one in Paris ). You are in a quiet town, as if not from this era, whose rhythm is determined by the lazy stream of the L'Aure River.
You'll love Chartres if you like exploring small towns and are interested in medieval architecture . After the sightseeing, you will rest in a cozy cafe or on a bench in one of the many parks. Don't miss them when you feel like relaxing in the shade of nature.
