This is one of the nicest buildings in Chartres, very well preserved. The tourist office of the town is installed here, do not hesitate to enter for free city info and some souvenirs, the staff is very friendly and helpful!

While the exterior is impressive they have sadly updated the interior. Go inside and you will find the tourist information center but not a lot else worth your time.
