Focus on the illuminated sites
While some of them are static, almost all of the scenographies of Chartres in Lights are dynamic, using the technique of video mapping. Some are even interactive and transform you into a scenographer.
To preserve a high-quality and modern event, the scenographies are partly renewed every year. These new items are unveiled to the public in preview during the Festival of Light in September.
This year, two new scenographies await you:
- The much awaited new scenography of the royal facade of the cathedral.
- The illumination of the façade of the Eurelium, the jewel case of the archives of the Departmental Council, created in homage to Proust.
But the other sites will also amaze you:
- The south doorway of the Notre-Dame Cathedral.
- The Museum of fine arts – The garden of bishop’s palace.
- The Museum of fine arts – Façade of honour.
- The north doorway of the Notre-Dame Cathedral.
- The Saint-Andre collegiate church.
- The bridges and wash-houses on the banks of the Eure.
- The Church of Saint-Pierre.
- The Rue des Écuyers.
- The De Lattre de Tassigny fresco.
- The Theatre of Chartres.
- The Apostrophe multimedia library.
- The Sainte-Foy church, chartres gallery.
