Photographer's Note

Orléans Cathedral (Basilique Cathédrale Sainte-Croix d'Orléans) is a fine example of Gothic architecture. It is probably most famous for its association with Joan of Arc as the French heroine attended the evening Mass there on May 2, 1429, while she was in the city to lift the siege.

I was a little bit disappointed by the city of Orléans, because apart from this cathedral and the house of Joan of Arc, there was almost nothing else to visit there.

The cathedral itself is astounding, though: 140 m long, 65 m high, with the central spire reaching 114 m.
