Orléans Cathedral, Orleans

4.6
The stained glass windows at Orléans Cathedral depict the story of Joan of Arc who attended evening Mass in this cathedral on May 2, 1429 while in the city to lift the siege. Built in the Gothic architectural style from 1278 to 1329 and partially destroyed in 1568, the cathedral was moderately rebuilt from 1601-1829. Despite renovations, some ancient remains that date back to the fourth century can still be seen in the crypt.

  • Very nice building that incorporates the codes of Gothic cathedrals while it was rebuilt well after this period. Beautiful stained glass Windows that give a special light to this imposing monument. One can also see a mock-up of the initial project, and a mock-up for the blind.

  • Orléans is a little jewely like city, everything is nice and lovely. The cathedral was a great visit, with the choir and music playing when we entered, magic moment. The city has many monuments and places related to Jeanne d'Arc. Don't hesitate to walk around the city center, the stop is worth it.
  • A magnificent cathedral built long time ago and still charms everyone nowadays!
  • Gothic splendour set in the beautiful town of Orleans. The old town is a must see.
  • Beautiful Place with easy access by local buses and Trams through the City. Sorrunded with best Restaurants and Situated in Centre of city. 🌸
  • Found it by chance just on 7pm when the sun was highlighting the front architecture. Just MAGNIFICENT
