Understanding the towers and treasure of Chartres Cathedral 

• A reference mark for other cathedrals. Chartres Cathedral was the first of the ‘Classical’ Cathedrals in the 13th century with tall windows. The quality of the sculpted decorations means that it is a reference for Gothic art. It was placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List due to the outstanding harmony of architecture, sculpture work, and stained glass, which has been celebrated by French authors such as Péguy and Claudel.
