Chartres sonne, Chartres t’appelle!
The three-day walking pilgrimage from Notre-Dame de Paris to Notre Dame de Chartres takes place over the Pentecost weekend, that’s May 13-17.

To whet your appetite, here is a short promotional video, in French, which will give you an excellent idea of what the pilgrimage is like:
I did the Chartres pilgrimage about a dozen times: if I were younger and fitter I would be doing it again this year. You walk about 70 miles in three days, and sleep under canvas. The French organisers handle the logistical side very well, but arrangements for washing, etc., are inevitably somewhat primitive.
