In it's massive high ceilings and beautiful structure, you can imagine the former glory of this place of worship! Now it is almost in ruins but I believe it will be restored one day... And the latter will be greater than the former. It is well worth the visit!

This was my favourite church in Chartres. It is neglected, but there are traces of it former glory and some poignant vignettes of times past. Somehow the simplicity of this site is what makes it a sanctuary for all and not just for the devout. Do visit. Take a breath and surrender.

Chartres is more than just its magnificent cathedral. Of course, that is the major draw of the town, but if you have time, explore the old city itself, which is to the south of the cathedral and extends downslope to the river. St-Pierre is in this area and you will consider a stop here one of the true finds. The... More

Worth the short walk from the Cathedral. We were lucky enough that a local man was in the church and gave us a little tour and information about the different sections of the church (not a scam...just a nice chap). Very interesting and a welcome bit of shade and cool on a VERY hot day.

The church is about 10 minutes walk down the hill from the Cathedral Square. It is a very good example of French Gothic and quite austere inside. It has nice proportions but is showing its age. We enjoyed it.

We passed by and entered the church. Beautiful and quiet church, close to the city center. There are a lot of old building surrounding this church.

Part of the reason to pay a visit is the walk down from the Cathedral through the historic part of town. The church, however, is in a sad state of disrepair, and unfortunately cries for restoration have fallen on deaf ears at City hall. It is an impressive building, a tall nave reminiscent of the Cathedral, yet the pavement is... More

We arrived at this church while strolling down the alley ways of Old Town Chartres . Very impressive mass of a building outside but dull and neglected inside , and in a deep need of restoration , The church has a lot of potential , but in its condition right now - unfortunalely not a must .

This Church from the 7th Century is full of history. If you are in Chartres you have to visit. It has been rebuilt several times.Since 1840 has been considered a Historical Monument
