You won't be sorry-take a few minutes and wander through this Cathedral. You will learn a bit of medieval French history as you 'read' the stained glass windows. We were visiting while organists were practicing. The sound is heavenly! This is a gorgeous Cathedral, similar to the look of Notre Dame de Paris, with no crowds. Stay for the nighttime light show!

If you are passing through it is well worth the stop to see the cathedral in Orléans. There are few in France with a better aspect, as the main road opens onto it. Best to park nearby and walk as there is a tramway and currently (Aug 2018) there are a few roads being dug up for resurfacing.
Inside the cathedral is beautiful. Lots of good places to eat nearby.

Gorgeous church not as grand as the one in Tours but still impressive. Given the low rise buildings in Orleans you can see it standing over the top of the city. The light show was on while we where in town which was excellent.

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)
