What you need to know before traveling to Eure et Loir

The Eure-et-Loir is home to two major rivers: the Loir and Eure. Some visit the Château of Anet, built for Henri II’s mistress, Diane du Poitier; others pay a visit to the pilgrimage to the Château of Maintenon. Here, amidst its Renaissance and Medieval architecture, Louis XIV, the Sun King, kept and later secretly married his mistress, Madame Scarron. You cannot see Chartres thoroughly in a weekend. Eure-et-Loir’s most beautiful city is home to the famous Chartres cathedral. This Gothic structure has a 13th century labyrinth on the nave floor. It holds the famous Veil of the Virgin relic in its apsidal Chapel. This is to say nothing of its vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows and 11th century crypt. In Chartres, there is also the Cellier de Loëns with attics acting as the Center International du Vitrail, the Gothic St. Pierre Church and 17th century St. Aignan.
