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.

  • Such an amazing, beautiful, magnificent cathedral which rich history written on stained glasses, craved in stones for centuries to tell their stories. Was luckily to have the chance to witnessed their Friday session to enjoy the beauty of songs echoing within the Cathedral. A must see when you're in this area!
  • A giant cathedral which will stone you just by looking at its beauty on the outside. When you go inside the cathedral, a nice and peaceful atmosphere of historical and cultural (and religious) scenes will surely make you agree that this place is a remarkable stop on your trip to the region.
