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.
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.
Here's what you can see when you stand behind the map board!
The stairs that lead you to the lower part of the garden.
"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!
Again... the step stairs...
Still the same step stairs, this time the picture is taken from the other side.
View over the cathedral
A group of students who spent their lunch time in the garden, even they had their lunch here.
The retaining wall of 17th century
The maze garden, a romantic place for young couples... or perfect place for children to running the labyrinth instead of walking!
Another group of students who visited the labyrinth garden...
... and spent a little time to rolling down on the green grass.
Quite a nice place to have a break!
That day, my friend and I were having our lunch here.
View over the cathedral, the back side of Fine-Art museum building and the cone-cut trees.
The memorial plaque to Jean Moulin, somewhere on the foot of the retaining wall.
I hope you enjoy my Chartres cathedral garden pictures collection.
