Church of Saint-Pierre - Église Saint-Pierre de Dreux

Église Saint-Pierre de Dreux, France. The construction of the church of Saint-Pierre runs from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century. Much (still visible today) dates from the fifteenth century, after the Hundred Years War and the destruction caused by the seat of King Henry V in 1421. The economic recovery in France then you can enlarge and beautify the church, or to redo parts: pillars of the choir, the nave repair, construction of eight side chapels, double ambulatory with seven apsidal chapels. And everywhere, the inclusion of beautiful stained glass windows. Several large families drouaises funded the work at the beginning of the reign of Louis XII (1498).
