"the medieval window at the cathedral in Chartres"

The Cathedral of our Lady of Chartres is a medieval cathedral in Chartres, a French town southwest of Paris. Constructed between 1190 and 1250 it is incredibly well-preserved, with almost all the original stained-glass windows intact, and as such is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many pilgrims come to view the Sancta Camisa, a holy relic said to be the tunic worn by the Virgin Mary at the birth of Jesus, and the building with its flying buttresses, sculptures and spires is an attraction in its own right. The cathedral has 176 windows which were mostly installed in the early thirteenth century and all of exceptional beauty and quality.
