Visiting the Orléans Cathedral: Cathedral Saint Croix

Happy Saturday everyone!

Another short post for today…

After 8 months of living in Orléans we finally got a chance to explore the inside of the Orléans Cathedral… the heart of our beautiful city.

Actually, our very first time visiting the inside was this past Easter while we attended mass.

However, with all of the Easter festivities going on we didn’t get a true chance to explore the inside like we wanted…

Located on Place Saint Croix… this gorgeous Cathedral is something you definitely won’t miss when visiting due to its MASSIVE size.

This Roman Catholic Church is known for its Gothic architectural style.. it almost looks a little spooky!

The details!!!

A little History…

Can you believe this place began being built from 1278-1329 and continued in 1601 then was completed in 1829…Crazy!

The cathedral is most famous for its association with Joan of Arc…the stained glass windows throughout the inside tell her story.

The inside of the Cathedral was even bigger and a lot more detailed then I expected… with an abundance of color and prints..I was in AWE! How can something so beautiful exist?! Also…. can I live here?? Lol

I mean, I don’t even have to say much… the pictures say everything…right!?

One of the things I love most about Orléans is that it’s big enough to have plenty of things to explore but small enough to do it all walking!

The area around the Cathedral is full of things to do, places to eat and shopping.. (most importantly).

Now that it’s getting warmer outside, I love seeing everyone outside and the streets busy!

Lastly, here is a picture of me pretending to be a princess in my castle. It’s ok to dream… 

Hope you all enjoyed visiting the inside of Cathedral Saint Croix with me!

Until next time…

Shalize ❤
