CHARTRES CATHE­DRAL

Living France - - Décourez -

This mag­nif­i­cent Gothic cathe­dral, south

of Paris, has been the sub­ject of a con­tro­ver­sial ren­o­va­tion pro­ject for the past few years. The dirt and grime that has built up over the last 800 years has been re­moved from the cathe­dral’s in­ter­nal walls and the ceil­ings of the cathe­dral have been re­stored to their orig­i­nal pale colour. The clean-up is due to be fin­ished in the next two years.
