Mighty impressive cathedral. Worthwhile visiting. Many sculptures and statues and small side chapels. Information should be provided in English or German instead of only French.

I was taking my first extended tour of this central part of France many years ago long before the range of calendar dates suitable for indicating the time of my visit were make available for completing this review. I brought with me a degree in French. A second degree in European history was helpful too. Do not go there with... More

Whilst we didn't go inside due to timings this is a beautiful and massive Cathderal not to be missed (it's difficult to miss something this big!). The road leading up to the front, with colourful flags hanging from buildings all the way up both sides is extremely photogenic

This is a lovely Cathedral that shows its age in some places. The pipe organ is beautiful as one would expect and restoration work does not hamper viewing.

stunning cathedral , been in many, many churches and cathedrals in France but this stands out as being special. there was renovation work being done when we were there some access was limited, but it didn't take away from this fantastic spectacle. Orleans is the birthplace of Jean Of Arc and the city obviously tributes her throughout the city.

It dominates the centre of town and the architecture is spectacular. Worth a visit for the sheer quality of architecture and windows. However it seemed sad and unloved. There is little made of the history of Orleans and the contribution of the Cathedral in the story of the town and the importance to France. Despite being a magnificent exemplar of... More

Lovely cathedral to visit. And enjoyable how it dominates the downtown. Walk the street in front of it, have a glass of wine at bistro facing it, enjoy the town.

It's impossible to imagine a building as impressive as this cathedral. It's so decorative and full of history that you could spend hours here.
