Chalons-en-Champagne, France

Chalons-en-Champagne has a population of 46,000 and is the capital of the region Champagne-Ardenne. For its nice old town with several important gothic churches, especially the cathedral and Notre-Dame-en-Vaux, Chalons has become part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage. Besides Reims, it is definitely one of the most interesting historic cites of the region and worth a visit for everyone who is a bit interested in art history.

Here are my pictures:





Notre-Dame-en-Vaux, mostly 12th/13th centuries:









Renaissance stained glass windows, 16th century:









Gotic stained glass windows, 12th/13th centuries:
