Chartres Labyrinth Tours offers a unique journey to Chartres Cathedral and its labyrinth. Tour topics include the world famous stained glass and sculpture, sacred geometry, The Divine Feminine, Black Virgins, the summer solstice and the history and symbolism of the labyrinth and much more.
Pilgrims have been walking this winding path for over 800 years. Built around 1200 AD, the Chartres labyrinth is called "The Road to Jerusalem," denoting both the Holy Land on Earth, and the Celestial City in Heaven. Walking the labyrinth is considered both a physical and spiritual journey, a truly unique path of meditation. Join us and see for yourself.

The CATHEDRAL is still OPEN with all its wonders, stained glass, staturary, etc., and TOURS are still GOING.
