Orleans Cathedral Photos

The Cathédrale Sainte-Croix d'Orléans was rebuilt in the 17th-19thC in an older Gothic style on the site of an earlier church (13th-16thC) partially destroyed (1568) by Protestants. It is noted for its rose windows, the Joan of Arc stained glass windows & chapel, plus its rotunda wedding-cake towers.
