Once you’ve left Orléans’s suburbs behind, you reach the attractive confluence of the Loiret and Loire rivers.

Don’t miss Meung-sur-Loire et Beaugency, deeply atmospheric small historic towns.

Castle of the Bishops of Orléans to Meung-sur-Loire

After being reconstructed several times, the castle has two aspects: a classical façade, pink and inviting, and another, medieval and austere - a reminder that the poet François Villon was imprisoned under the castle.

Place du Martroi to Orléans

In the city centre, the Place du Martroi is without a doubt the most symbolic square in Orléans. A huge statue of Joan of Arc astride a horse stands in the middle of the square.

Sainte-Croix Cathedral to Orléans

Of all the cathedrals of France, Sainte-Croix d'Orleans is the one with the oldest roots. The foundations of the original fourth century basilica can be seen in the crypt. Its current form, due to the renovations undertaken by Henri IV and his successors, make this the most famous example of the popularity of flamboyant Gothic art.
