“Beautiful church”

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 August 2018 via mobile

The vacation was almost over but we needed to stay a day longer because the ride to home took a lot of hours. So we decided to stop in Orléans! When we came out of the parking garage I directly saw a beautiful big church and I walked to the front. From the front it is a beautiful view of the big church. I made a depth photo of the front in the beautiful street that leads to the front of the church. If you have the change to visit Orléans just park your car in the parking garage "The Church" this parking garage is in the middle of Orléans so everything is on walking distance and there will be a lightshow on Thursday till Sunday with this lightshow (starts 10. 30pm)

Cathedrals and churches all over the world is mostly dedicated to men. Religion is big business for males.

But the cathedral of Orleans has a statue and fine windows that glorifies the first lady of the city: Jeanne d’Arc. There is also a little chapel for those who worship Virgin Mary.

The #MeToo movement apparently started hundreds of years ago.

The cathedral is impressive - but not touching as another church in Orleans, Paroisse de Saint Paterne.

Really lovely cathedral in a lovely, perhaps, overlooked city. Beautiful stained glass windows. Calm surroundings. Nice place to take a few quiet moments..
