Chartres Cathedral Garden Pictures

Chartres cathedral garden pictures collection show you almost every corner of the garden, which is situated behind the cathedral and Fine-Art museum on the upper and lower land.

The original name is Jardin de l'Évêché or in English is Bishop's Palace garden but due to my poor French pronunciation, I'd love to call it as Chartres cathedral garden.

The bishop's palace is now known as Fine-Art Museum.

How is the garden and what you can see and do there? I hope you could find the answer from my photos collection in this page.

Enjoy my Chartres Cathedral Garden Pictures collection!

You can get this view when you enter from Fine-Art museum gate. This picture was taken in winter, a day on February.

The map board - Histoire de la Cité

Histoire de la Cité - the map board shows what you can see from the upper land of Chartres Cathedral Garden.

I recommend you to bring a binocular in order to view what were mentioned on the map board. If you don't have one with you, binoculars rental is available at Chartres Tourism Office.

Or see what is down there... but be careful not to let yourself falling down! It always makes me worry when seeing my kids half climbing the wall to see the maze garden down there.

"Mom, I'm running down the hill....."
I wonder why my daughter prefer running down across the green grass rather than using the step stairs!
