Chartres Cathedral: A beautiful building that dominates the city Dec 05, 2012
I had the opportunity to live in Chartres in early 1999 for 3 months. Our appartment window pointed towards the Cathedral and I found myself often staring out the window towards the Cathedral. It is built up on a hill and is visible in many parts of the city.

Inside, there are two things I remember well:

1) The stained glass windows are astounding. They are large, colorful, and very detailed.

2) Inside, there is a maze that pilgrims visit and navigate on their knees.

Also, throughout the cathedral (inside and out), there are many beautiful, detailed carvings.

I've seem quite a few Cathedrals in the 4 years I lived in Europe and Chartres was my favorite of them all.
