Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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 beautiful cathedral, don't forget to look up, the tops of the towers are unusual and open. Looks like it is restored recently. Well worth a visit.
