The little Rue Saint-Yves lies within the bounds of Chartres cathedral. The gateway dates from 1257. It is known as the Porte de l’Officialité because in medieval times it provided access to the Ecclesiastical Tribunal.
My thanks to the unknown lady who appeared from around the corner just as I was taking the shot. She made all the difference, not least in giving an idea of the scale of the Cathedral itself.
