The gothic cathedral in the center of Orleans is one of the most impressive buildings in the city. It was built by Henri IV. Construction of the cathedral began in the thirteenth century. The church was completed at the beginning of the sixteenth century. The majority of the church dates from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In the twentieth century, an American bomb damaged the towers. Inside, there are several interesting things to see. In the middle chapel is a statue of the local sculptor Michel Bourdin. The choir stalls date from the beginning of the eighteenth century and are created by Degoullons. In the crypt are the remains of older churches and two sarcophagi. The large western facade is largely glass-stained. This glass tells the story of Joan of Arc, one of the bravest and most celebrated in French history.
