Chartres Calendar - November Events 2011

Are you in Chartres during this autumn 2011? Explore November Events to know what you can have fun with.

Although Chartres is getting colder this month, the surrounding landscape gives beautiful autumn colors that will keep my camera warm.

Talking a walk and capturing those red, orange and golden colors of autumn with my camera always gives me a great pleasure.

Places like Bishops Palace garden and Andre Gagnon Park are always my favorite places to find those autumn leaves.
