Transport Tours to Chartres

by ODuinn

Is there rail/bus transport from Tours to Chartres Are there Senior fares?What are Blue Periods when travelling, when you buy a return ticket can you use it to return on the folling days

Re: Transport Tours to Chartres

You can find train times and details in English here:

For times, details and fares it is best to use the French language

It is easy to work out. If you use the English translation it will take you to Raileurope, a ticketing agency which charges commission on fares and does not list all departires.

Journey time from Tours to Chartres is around 2.5 hours, with one change.

Fares vary according to departure, from 30.20 euro upwards.

I do not know if you would be eligible for any Senior would have to buy a Carte Senior to take advantage of them anyway.

The 'blue' period seems to me to be what we in the UK call 'off-peak', when the less expensive fares are available.

I can't answer your question about return tickets, sorry (I have always just used two singles, as a return held not advantage). Hopefully a French member will come along soon and do so.

Hi, If you are booking on-line you just state the date of your return on the site.Same if you go to a station, just tell them your return date, it's no problem. For senior fares you have to be 60 and over. If you book on-line the site will take your word for it, but be prepared to show proof of your age on the train. Same applies at a station, just show your I.D.

Re: Transport Tours to Chartres

If your journey both ways is by TER trains, there are no reservations and your return ticket will be an open ticket valid on any TER train for the next three months. There is no reason to book TER tickets in advance as the fare is the same whether you buy on the day or weeks in advance.

Some of the TER only journeys between Tours and Chartres I spotted are in fact faster than other choices using TGV or Intercites trains.

If the journey involves an 'Intercites' train you can save money by buying in advance but reservations are not essential.

If the journey involves a TGV train you must make a reservation and the more in advance that you can the more you save. But your tickets will be for a specific seat on a specific train on a specific day. If your plans change you would have to revalidate your ticket and possibly pay more.

Yes on TGV 'Periode Bleu' are the cheaper days. The White (expensive)periods are basically Monday mornings also Friday and Sunday afternoons and evenings all year. Around major holidays and in summer (especially on Saturdays) the white period is all day on certain days.

Trust that helps.

Travel Tips for Chartres

The South Rose Window

by Goner

The South Rose Window illustrates the Apocalyse with Christ in Majesty (1225).

It would take hours, more like days, just to view all the windows and learn what they are illustrating. Each window is divided into panels, which are usually read from left to right, bottom to top (earth to heaven). The number of figures or abstract shapes used is symbolic; three stands for the Church, squares and the number four symbolize the material world of the four elements, circles for eternal life.

The Royal Portal

by Goner

The oldest parts of the cathedral are its crypt and the west portal, or Royal Portal, which are remnants of a Romanesque church that was mostly destroyed by fire in 1194.

The central tympanum (space within the arch above the lintel) illustrates the Apocalypse with a central Christ surrounded by four beasts (Revelations 4-5); the twenty-four Elders and angels are in the voussoirs (wedge shaped stones). The tympanum to the left depicts Christ's Incarnation, the one to the right, his Ascension; thus the three tympana read together present a unified theme: Christ's entry into human history, his departure, and the end of time.

Fourteen figures occupy the lintel, identified as the twelve apostles, to whom Christ said at the Last Supper, "You shall sit on thrones as judges of the twelve tribes of Israel" (Luke 22:30) and Enoch and Elijah at either end.

Clown at the Cathedral

by Toyin

Just outside the cathedral is this clown as I call him..He has a pigeon, a rooster and a hen that are well programmed. These birds seems to know exacly what to do and you pay only 2 euros to have his picture taken.

Meslay-le-Grenet: The Old Wooden Church

by hquittner

This 15C Church is an example of a double nave hall church. It ha a fine wooden pulpit and a ship-keel wooden roof which is inscribed with coats-of arms of nearby ancient aristocracy. The walls are covered by two levels of primitive murals of the late 15C. The upper level contains the Passion and the legend of the the Encounter between the Three Knights and the Three Dead Men (The Triumph of Death). The lower level is the depiction of the Danse Macabre. Only a few examples of this unusual memento mori reain in Europe and ths may be the best. (The light is not ideal ).

West Facade: See the Rebirth of Sculpture

by hquittner

The most puzzling phenomenon in Art History is the total disappearance of sculpture and its technics between 600-1000AD. Earlier (3-600) there was a clear deterioration in this craft seen in the existing works (mostly sarcophagi). Was it lack of economic stimulus (wealthy patrons), lack of teaching (communication) due to depopulation, or just iconoclasm? Some metal working ("goldsmithing"), wood and ivory surface carving, and Celtic stone cross detailing has been found. From these seeds in the 11C, stone decoration began to appear on the outside of churches: first the modillions under the roof, then lintels, the tympani, the jambs and finally the trumeaux. Credit for the first free-standing "in the round" sculpted figures must be given to the mind of Abbot Suger of St. Denis fame. He was a prominent leader at Cluny where church building was a major subject of interest (Santiago and the tourist-pilgrimage trade). When he arrived outside of Paris, he knew of all the best masons and artisans and his insights and abilities initiated the Gothic style, including the column-statue figures on his facade (destroyed during the Revolution). When they were done these anonymous masters moved to a bigger job at Chartres joined by others from nearby venues. This "school" later dispersed throughout the region.
Above all note the well-shaped faces with a hint of expression and the natural flow of the garments. It only gets better in the following years, but sometimes the simplest and purest is best! We show here the statues in the embrasures of the of the South Door, south side (2 views), followed by its opposite on the north; the last two views are the North and South embrasures of the North Bay (door). All of the statues are worth viewing and we show all the others (and the trumeaux), along with comments, in two Travelogs
