    Cathédrale Sainte-Croix d'Orléans

    To the angels' feet.

    Built from the late 13th century onwards, the Sainte-Croix cathedral in Orléans was damaged by the protestants in 1586. In appreciation of the town's support of his cause, Henry IV began reconstruction in the Gothic style. You'll be struck by the beauty of the 18th century woodwork of the eighteenth century, made after the style of Jacques V Gabriel, who decorated the choir stalls.
    During your visit to the Cathedral of St. Croix d'Orleans, you can climb to the foot of the eight angels that adorn the tops of both towers. They symbolize the instruments of the Passion of Christ.
