Chartres en lumières is a free event to highlight the heritage produced by the City of Chartres. Because of the richness of its programming, its frequency and duration, Chartres en lumières is the largest operation of its kind in the world.
Every evening, from April to January, more than 20 heritage sites in the historic city center are illuminated to take you on a journey through time and space or to plunge you into a colorful, magical world. All the scenographies are looped, so you’ll never miss the start!
Thus, thanks to the different artists and their scenographic work resolutely turned towards light, the cathedral, the theater, the media library, the bridges and wash houses and many other heritage treasures are explored, unveiled, revisited.
Chartres en lumières has made a name for itself in the hearts of Chartrains and visitors (and perhaps yours?), eager to see the city lit up again in April, a period that marks the arrival of fine weather and the desire to go out, to stroll, to share moments on the terrace.
