Majestic

Now, I'm a fan of sunsets, especially on the beach!. But, on this trip to Picardy and especially during our time in Orleans, I noticed that the sunsets were not only beautiful with the sea as the background, but equally beautiful when setting over the cathedral. The cathedral is already majestic, but at sunset it becomes truly sublime.

Orléans cathedral

Orleans Cathedral is a Gothic style building that was built between 1278 and 1329. Right now it's being restored on the outside, but it can still be seen from anywhere given its beauty. Inside the cathedral seems much bigger than it looks on the outside, and it's full of light and space. The church's organ is beautiful, and if you're lucky enough to be inside when it sounds it's a delight for the ears, and it gives the cathedral a nice twist.

Father Claude Girault Rector of the Cathedral of Orleans St. Croix "

"Parmi toutes les cathédrales de France, Sainte Croix d'Orléans est celle qui possède les plus anciens vestiges. En effet, les fondements de la basilique primitive du IVème siècle sont visibles dans la crypte.

Elle est celle qui manifeste également le mieux la tradition catholique à travers les différents âges de l'architecture religieuse avec les restes de cinq édifices successifs, étroitement soudés et superposés, dont les dates s'échelonnent depuis l'époque gallo-romaine jusqu'à la Révolution.

Elle est celle qui manifeste aussi le plus fortement les épreuves historiques de la France : Souvenirs et traces des invasions barbares, de la guerre de cent ans, des guerres de religions, de la Révolution et de la seconde guerre mondiale.

Sa forme actuelle, due aux restaurations d'Henri IV et de ses successeurs, en fait le plus célèbre exemple de la persistance de l'art gothique flamboyant. En effet, des vestiges de l'Eglise primitive gallo-romaine à la flèche et aux vitraux du XIXème, tous les siècles et tous les styles son venus enrichir l'édifice au fur et à mesure de sa construction et de ses incessantes reconstruction et restaurations.

A l'intérieur de la Cathédrale une chapelle est dédiée à Sainte Jeanne d'Arc, héroïne de la délivrance d'Orléans le 8 mai 1429 et qui est fêtée chaque année, quasiment sans interruption depuis 1430, le jour anniversaire de sa victoire sur les Anglais. Les Orléanais, reconnaissants, organisent des fêtes grandioses, reconnues au niveau international. Une foule de touristes français et étrangers envahit la ville pour commémorer l'événement.

La Cathédrale offre beaucoup à qui saura prendre son temps pour découvrir les mille traces qui ont été laissées en huit siècles par ceux qui sont venus y prier, y travailler et y exprimer leur foi. Elle est ouverte aux visiteurs et aux pèlerins chaque jour de l'année mais durant les mois de juillet et d'août vous y serez plus particulièrement accueillis, bien sûr pour la visiter, mais aussi, dans le cadre de la Pastorale du Tourisme, pour vous confier, pour prier, pour célébrer.

Orléans is a small city in central France, in the region rather "focus", but it's only an hour from Paris by train, so you can take advantage to visit on a day out in Paris. The train leaves Paris Austerlitz, and you have to stop at the station of Les Aubrais, where you take a small train to the city center. Unless you want to spend a full day in the large botanical garden, which is about the best place in the city, a day is more than enough to discover. The cathedral was founded in the third century by the Bishop of San Euverte Orléan, and began to be a place of worship in the middle of the same century. The destroyed several times during the city's conquests and wars, and build again, but the great work of the cathedral we see today began in the thirteenth century. Protestants destroyed it again in 1568 during an attack on the city, and he was very little, but the following kings endeavored to restore it. The construction was completed in the eighteenth century. Gothic style, the cathedral is dedicated to the Holy Cross. The towers are 80 meters high, and the central shaft 115 meters.

Orléans es una ciudad pequeña del centro de Francia, más bien de la región “centre”, pero está a solamente una hora de París en tren, por lo cual puedes aprovechar para visitarla en un día saliendo de París. El tren sale de París Austerlitz, y hay que parar en la estación de Les Aubrais, donde se toma un tren más pequeño para el centro de la ciudad. Al menos que quieras pasar un día completo en el gran jardín botánico, que es casi el mejor lugar de la ciudad, un día es más que suficiente para descubrirla.

La catedral se fundó en el siglo III, por el obispo de Orléan San Euverte, y empezó a ser un lugar de culto a mediados del mismo siglo. La destruyeron varias veces durante las conquistas de la ciudad y las guerras, y la volvieron a construir, pero la gran obra de la catedral que vemos hoy empezó en el siglo XIII.

Los protestantes la destruyeron una vez más en el 1568 durante un ataque de la ciudad, y quedó muy poco, pero los reyes siguientes se empeñaron a restaurarla. La construcción se terminó en el siglo XVIII.

De estilo gótico, la catedral está dedicada a la Santa Cruz. Las torres miden 80 metros de alto, y la flecha central 115 metros.

The windows of the cathedral of orleans

Orleans Cathedral honors the life of Joan of Arc, the great historical figure who has left a mark on this city to release of the British troops. The windows evoke the life of Joan of Arc and were performed by Galland and Gibelin in 1893, They can relive the most important moments of his life: as a child since I heard the voices of three saints to be convinced of his mission on earth when a soldier receives weapons, when presented to the Dauphin to support their cause by the succession to the French throne, his confrontation with the British to liberate Orleans in 1429, his confrontation with the new King who had helped his trial His death at the stake after agreeing not to dress like a man.

Las vidrieras de la catedral de orleans

La Catedral de Orleans rinde homenaje a la vida de Juana de Arco, el gran personaje histórico que ha dejado huella en esta ciudad al liberarla de las tropas inglesas.
Las vidrieras evocan la vida de Juana de Arco y fueron realizados por Galland y Gibelin en 1893, En ellos podemos revivir los momentos mas importantes de su vida: desde que desde niña escuchara las voces de 3 santos que la convencieran de su misión en la tierra, cuando recibe las armas de soldado, cuando se presenta ante el Delfín para apoyar su causa por la sucesión al trono de Francia, su enfrentamiento con los ingleses para liberar Orleans en 1429, su enfrentamiento con el nuevo Rey a quien había ayudado, su juicio, su muerte en la hoguera tras haber aceptado no volver a vestirse como un hombre.

View of the court from the main street or around this cathedral rises in the sky gracefully. Inside, part of which is dedicated to Joan of Arc is simply beautiful and is far from letting marble! Quiet and fullness still think this visit.

Vue du parvis, de la rue principale ou des alentours, cette cathedrale s'élève dans le ciel avec élégance. L'intérieur, dont une partie est dédiée à Jeanne d'Arc est tout simplement magnifique et est loin de laisser de marbre! Calme et plénitude raisonnent encore de cette visite.
