Orléans Cathedral, Orleans

(4.7/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Visit to the Cathedral group and its heights. A very good guide makes you share a moment of history and architectural culture. Amazing views throughout the visit of the heights on a small path. It's high! We see very far, we discover the city, the gargoyles. The beautiful work by companions of the duty. A remarkable work. A visit not to be missed!
