Chartres en Lumières Summer 2018 Chartres fr

A spectacular display of art and history

The luminous artwork displayed during this event is designed 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!
