Travel Guide to Orleans, France

Many years ago it was founded be the Romans (they named it Genabum). Orleans was the evident of numerous historical events, but the greatest time for the city became the 15th century. In 1429 Joan of Arc made Orleans independent from the English and the city started its new life. A lot of places of interest that you can visit nowadays are closely connected to that event.

For instance, in the St Croix Cathedral they keep the pedestal, devoted to Joan. It's placed on the marvellous altar with some carved images that tell us about her deeds. To learn more about Joan's life, you can have a look at the colourful glass windows of the 19th century.
