Notre Dame Sous Terre (Our Lady Underground) in the crypt of Notre Dame de Chartres, one of the most powerful places of the Dark Madonna. This is a replica of the old Dark Madonna, one of many destroyed during the French Revolution. Pilgrims still come by the thousands to be in the presence of Notre Dame Sous Terre, whose origins reach back to a pre-Christian image venerated in this place.
