La Poste is publishing a stamp collection on "Chartres en lumières" which honors 8 emblematic places of Chartres' heritage.
After the success of 2016, La Poste is publishing a new stamp collection dedicated to the "Chartres en lumières" operation in 2022, in partnership with the City of Chartres. This limited edition, never before published, dedicates eight stamps to the illuminations of the city's flagship event, which has been highlighting the city's heritage through light every year since 2003.
The 8 stamps of the collector highlight the Chartres cathedral with the royal portal and 2 views of the north portal, the Saint-Pierre church, the theater, 2 illustrations of the Quai Gloriette and the Halle Billard. This collector allows the general public to dive into a colorful fairytale universe and discover the city of Chartres in its lights.
