Chartres, the town

Chartres city street

Our first day was gloomy and overcast, but the streets of the old town center of Chartres were still magically appealing. A brief walk through town, a stop for lunch, and we continued on our way to Dinan. It's only 1 p.m. We still have plenty of time.

Chartres half-timbered house
This was our first glimpse of the half-timbered style that is common throughout Brittany and Normandy.
