About the Saint-Pierre Church
The Church of Saint-Pierre is the most important church in Chartres after the cathedral. It was first the abbey-church of the Abbey of Saint-Père, proven to be 7th century and of which an 11th century remains, after which it acquired its current Gothic architecture in the 13th century. It has a wonderful collection of stained glass including 13th century glass and elements of 16th century glass inherited from long-vanished churches. This collection of glass is very rich in both motifs and in colours.
